At least 84 people have been killed and more than 50 seriously injured after a terrorist used a 25-tonne lorry to go on a mile-long killing spree by mowing down crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice last night.
The killer, a 31-year-old French Tunisian who was known to police, then got out and sprayed fleeing revellers with bullets before being shot dead by police.
The truck driver was said to have shouted 'Allahu Akbar' – God is greatest – before being killed. Pro-ISIS groups have been celebrating the attack, orchestrated to coincide with France's most important national holiday.
One eyewitness described seeing 'bodies flying like bowling pins' as the horror unfolded on a busy promenade in the southern city of Nice at around 10.30pm local time last night. Dead bodies covered in blankets remain on the Promenade de Anglais today.
