DEVELOPING in FRANCE: A large truck drove into a crowd of people who had gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks show Thursday in the southern French city of Nice, killing at least 73 people and injuring 100 more in an apparent terror attack, officials said.

The official told France’s BFM TV that the driver of the truck was also dead. A witness,  Wassim Bouhlel, told the Associated Press that he saw the truck drive into the crowd, then witnessed the driver emerge with a gun and start shooting.

“There was carnage on the road,” Bouhlel said. “Bodies everywhere.”

Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi asked residents to stay where they were immediately following the attack.

The apparent attack happened at around 10:30 p.m. on the Promenade des Anglais, a major boulevard along the Mediterranean Sea.

The Nice-Matin newspaper quoted one of its reporters as saying the truck driver “mounted onto the Prom and he drove on everyone.” The reporter added, “people are running, it’s panic.”
