International desk – France has declared three days of national mourning, beginning Saturday after the European country was hit by a third devastating attack within 18 months.

A large white truck mowed through a crowd of revellers gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks display in the Riviera city of Nice, killing at least 84.

Many others were injured as the driver ploughed through the lorry into crowd before the security forces shot him dead.

The driver barrelled the truck two kilometres through the crowd and then started firing his pistol at men, women and children, according to local newspaper.
