Forums - General Discussion - Attack in Nice, France during Bastille Day. 78 killed, hundreds wounded.

During the Bastille Day Fireworks in Nice, a truck ran into the crowd at the Promenade des Anglais.

More than a hundred people were wounded, tens were killed. First approximations are at least ~30 killed.

Terrorist attack possible, but unlikely. Authorities talked about a "criminal attack". Gunshots were heard, but since the driver was shot down by the Police, that could explain it.

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

France can't catch a break this days, dammit.

Came here for this, wasn't disappointed. Really sad news though, was this another ISIS attack?

We don't know yet. It's a possibility, but it's way too early to know, it only happened about a hour ago.
For now, the authorities are talking about a criminal attack, as said in the OP
