France Terrorist Attack Leaves Hundreds of Victims Piled in Streets

Nice, France – At least 77 people are dead and hundreds injured after a terrorist attack Thursday night. A terrorist drove a truck through a crowd of people who had gathered to watch fireworks. When the truck stopped, the driver got out and started shooting. Fox News obtained a video of the France terrorist attack:

Fox News reports:

The horror began at around 10:30 p.m. local time. A local government official told Fox News that the truck was driving full speed when it hit the crowd on the Promenade des Anglais, a major boulevard along the Mediterranean Sea.

Damien Allemand, a journalist for the local Nice-Matin newspaper, said the fireworks display was over and people were getting up to leave when they heard a loud noise and screams.

“A fraction of a second later, an enormous white truck came along at a crazy speed, turning the wheel to mow down the maximum number of people,” he said. “I saw bodies flying like bowling pins along its route. Heard noises, cries that I will never forget.”

Allemand said people took shelter in a nearby restaurant, where he continued to hear people shouting for missing family members. He ventured out and saw bodies, blood and body parts all along the road.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but but France has recently seen a spate of dramatic assaults from by jihadist groups, including the Islamic State group (ISIS) which straddles Iraq and Syria.

A U.S. official told Fox News that the attack was in line with ISIS, which has become “increasingly brazen” in its attacks as it comes under increasing military pressure in Iraq and Syria.

Information is not all available as this chaotic scene is still being handled, but at this time it appears that the shooter was killed in a gun battle with law enforcement.
