At leat 84 people were killed Thurday night, July 14th, when a large truck plowed through a Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France.
The driver first shot a gun into the crowd before driving two kilometers along the Promenade des Anglais, the main street in Nice, mowing down people who had gathered to watch fireworks.
This video shows first pictures of the mass kill:
Police shot and killed the driver. Police found firearms, explosives and grenades in the truck.
Hollande recommended that an existing state of emergency, put in place in the wake of the Paris attacks in November 2015 and due to expire later this month, be extended for three further months.
So far, no group has claimed responsibility. Anti-terror prosecutors have taken over the investigation.
