Dozens run over and killed in France

Nice France Truck - CNN.com

Quote:
The mayor of Nice, France, tweeted that a truck ran into a crowd on Bastille Day, killing multiple people.
Mayor Christian Estrosi said late Thursday that there are "tens of dead."
"Dear Nice residents, the driver of a truck appears to have caused tens of deaths. Stay for the moment in your homes. More info to come."

Looks like it was more than one person in a semi. Eye witnesses say the truck sped up when it hit people. Gun shots where also heard but don't know if it came from the truck.

A lorry has struck a crowd during Bastille Day celebrations in the southern French city of Nice, with reports of many dead.

The incident took place on the famous Promenade des Anglais during a firework display, media reports say.

One image on Twitter showed about a dozen people lying on the street, some being tended to.

The local prefecture has urged people in the area to remain indoors, calling the incident "an attack".

Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said that "a lorry driver appears to have killed dozens of people".

He urged residents to stay indoors.

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

Social media video showed people running through the streets in panic following the incident.

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

An Agence France-Presse reporter said the incident took place as the firework display was ending, adding: "We saw people hit and bits of debris flying around."

Another image on Twitter showed a white lorry stopped in the middle of the promenade with damage to its front, and four police officers observing it while taking cover behind a palm tree.

just goes to show anti gun fanatics that if the intent to kill exists, there are plenty of easy methods that do not involve guns.

If you want to kill a bunch of random people if you want to kill a bunch of white cops a gun is the way to go.

What a sad story.

I'm not saying this as a joke but the only time I see the world starting to "work" together and not do stupid shit is the day Aliens land on the planet and we realize how insignificant we are.

I'll take trying to dodge a car over a bullet any day of the week. Sure there will always be a way to kill someone regardless but that doesn't mean that the most efficient top choice method should be easy as pie to get.

They're saying 30 dead so far and 100 injured now.. Jesus

I wonder if it's an Isis supporter or a part of the neo-nazi group whose plans were foiled just before UEFA (they didn't find all suspects of that group yet) or just a mad man

73 Confirmed dead now.

They're saying the terrorist got out of the truck after driving 2km into the crowd and started shooting a gun randomly at people.

To me it sounds like this is another case of gun violence. Ban all guns. Oh wait...

If this ends up being a terrorist attack, how long do France and western nations continue to experience this pain until a full-blown war occurs?

Just so sad and terrible.

guns and grenades found inside truck, and eye witnesses said ak-47 used to spray down people.

Fucking hell I haven't been this angry at world news in a while.

As absolutely terrible and fucked up as any type of random attack to kill people is, deadly attacks in a setting with adults (concert, nightclub, w/e) is far different than an attack on a fucking beach with children and families. Fuck.

France has had an incredibly hard year, and something drastic may happen in the next few days. Fucking hell.

The problem is, there is no country to wage a war against. Waging a war against terrorists/terrorism is pretty difficult. The next killer could be your neighbour, your coworker, a family member. It's pretty scary that people have such weak minds that they can be recruited to kill innocent people. I wonder what makes these people tick. Have they not experienced love and compassion? You have to be pretty cold hearted.

I guess it's back to having a pretty pathetic brain - to let religion or whatever organization it is, dictate how you behave. That's not thinking on your own.

Selfish, brainless, cowardly, scums.

This event took place in a large gathering. Perfect opportunity to cause the most amount of damage. Terrorists want people to be on edge. Create paranoia and chaos. Sporting events, concerts, celebrations, all not safe places to be.

What about a car AND a bullet? GG.

Reports saying now there were weapons found in the truck... It's insane how people can't even go out and celebrate a national holiday without being scared for their lives.. We are SO lucky to live in Canada.
