A French prosecutor said that of the 202 people injured, 25 are on life support and 52 in a critical condition as he confirmed the attack was carried out by Bouhlel, who lived in Nice.

A truck slammed into a group of people who were observing a fireworks show during a celebration of Bastille Day in the early hours of Friday in Nice, southern France.

Reports indicate that a truck plowed into crowds watching a fireworks display on France's Bastille Day national holiday on the Nice seafront.

French President François Hollande declared three national days of mourning and extended the country's state of emergency-still in place since November's attack on the headquarters of satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo-by another three months.

A hotel in Dallas has lit up in the blue, white and red of the French flag in tribute to the victims of the truck attack in Nice, France.

Local taxi drivers also offered free rides to people, transporting them away from the devastation.

At least 84 have been killed, another 50 seriously injured, and many others hurt. "I came out onto my terrace and in front of me I could see lots of what appeared to be bodies lying on the road just outside of where I'm sitting now actually".

Partiers in summer apparel ran for their lives down Nice's palm tree-lined Promenade des Anglais, the city's famous seaside boulevard. "Senior officials today will be reviewing what more we can do to ascertain if there is any further action we need to take, but our security services and our police are ever vigilant", May said. U.S. President Barack Obama said he condemned the attack "in the strongest terms".

Sean Copeland, 51, and his son Brodie, 11, of Lakeway, Texas, were on a European summer vacation that began with the running of the bulls in Spain. "They are so loved".

"The tragic paradox is that the subject of the Nice attack was the people celebrating liberty, equality and fraternity", said European Union President Donald Tusk on Twitter.

France, one of the world's top tourist destinations, has long known it is a top target for the Islamic State group.

Eyewitness Eric Ciotti, a local lawmaker, told Europe 1 radio (link in French) that a person of "extraordinary courage" leapt onto the truck as people tried to flee from its path.

France is conducting air strikes and special forces operations against Islamic State, as well as training Iraqi government and Kurdish forces. Nice was home for a prolific producer of French-language jihadist recruitment videos, a former petty drug dealer named Omar Omsen who is now fighting in Syria.
