Guns and grenades were found inside the lorry and driver were shot dead. President Francois claimed that the attack was of “Terrorist nature”.

France had been on high alert since last November attacks in Paris and this state of emergency has been extended across France by three months.

Mr. Francois Holland said “France is badly hit,” adding that “we need to do everything we can to fight against such attacks”. He further adds “All of France is under the threat of Islamic terrorism”.

Some reports spoke of shots being exchanged between police and the occupants of the lorry but these have not been confirmed.

A journalist with the Nice Matin newspaper reported from the scene that there was “a lot of blood and without doubt many injured”.

“Everyone was calling run, run, run there’s an attack run, run, run. We heard some shots. We thought they were fireworks because it’s the 14th of July. There was great panic. We were running too because we didn’t want to stick around and we went into a hotel to get to safety”. An eyewitness told BFM TV.

Flags in France will be flying at half-mast on Friday, and Nice’s jazz festival has been canceled.
