People bring candles and flowers to the improvised memorial of the victims in the terrorist attack in Nice. Some expressed dissatisfaction with the government’s policy; according to Francetvinfo, Prime Minister Manuel Valls was hissed away as he approached the memorial at Promenade des Anglais. Some people demanded President Francois Hollande’s resignation.

As 112 International reported, 85 people deceased and about 200 more were wounded in the terrorist attack in Nice, France. The terrorist, presumably ISIS militant, ran into the crowd as he was driving and shooting people in streets. The police killed him and later found more weapons and explosives in the truck. Identity papers of a French-Tunisian were also discovered, according to a police source quoted by news agency AFP (Sky News).

Leading political figures from around the globe expressed condolences to the French nation and the government.
