BREAKING NEWS: Tragedy Strikes Nice, France On Bastile Day

I’m not sure how much more heart break we can take.

A day of celebration quickly turned into a day of mourning on July 14, 2016, when a terrorist attack in Nice, France killed 84 people, 2 of which are American citizens and 10 children.

In this graphic video, you can see a truck speeding in, tearing the large group of people apart in fear as the attack begins. The truck drove for over a mile before the driver, 31 year old Tunisia native, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, was shot dead by police.

Watch this exclusive video by the Associated Press that shows the moment Bouhlel was shot and killed by the police.

Bouhlel’s I.D was recovered from the truck but no DNA match has been done to verify his identity. Bouhlel is a well-known criminal to the police for committing several varied crimes, none of which were serious enough to have him under surveillance.

President François Hollande has issued a 3 day state of emergency and will be requesting a 3 month extension to the extended state of emergency that was issued from the November 2015 Paris attack, which is originally set to expire on July 26, 2016.

Our prayers are with the families who have suffered from this unfortunate tragedy. This story is still developing we will keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
