BREAKING | Gun And Truck Attack Kill 80 In Nice, France [PHOTOS & VIDEOS]

The front of the truck was badly damaged after it knocked down dozens of people enjoying an evening by the sea front At least 80 people are dead and more than 50 injured after they were mowed down by a truck in a suspected terror attack during the Bastille Day celebrations in the French city of Nice.

There was an exchange of gunfire in the aftermath of the incident before the driver was shot dead by police. A second suspect is thought to have escaped and is on the run. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, according to unconfirmed reports in the French media.

Guns and grenades were found inside the truck, which mounted the pavement at approximately 40mph and drove for a mile mowing down hundreds of people. Bodies – including those of children- were left strewn across the ground as blood streamed through the streets, where just moments earlier families had excitedly huddled to watch a firework display celebrating the French public holiday.

Anti-terror police swooped in as the city was put on lockdown and residents were warned to stay indoors for their safety. Gunshots rang out in the streets, with gunmen targeting hotels and cafes in the port city in the south of France.
