Following the truck attack in Nice (France) that left at least 77 people dead, the president of the region has cancelled the city’s jazz festival and a Rihanna concert. While the jazz festival was set to open on Saturday, Rihanna’s concert was scheduled for Friday.
A truck ploughed into a crowd in the French resort of Nice, leaving at least 77 dead and scores injured in an attack after a Bastille Day fireworks display, officials said Friday.
Christian Estrosi said flags would be lowered across the city on Friday. He gave the latest death toll as 77 after a truck plowed into people celebrating Bastille Day at a fireworks display on the city’s famous Promenade des Anglais.
The driver of the truck was shot dead after barrelling two kilometres (1.3 miles) through the crowd on the palm-lined Promenade des Anglais, sending hundreds fleeing in terror and leaving the area strewn with bodies.
