On the evening of 14 July 2016, a 19-tonne cargo truck was deliberately driven into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France. The attacker killed 84 people and injured 434, 52 critically; 25 remained on life support the next day; an 85th person died from injuries three weeks after the attack, and an 86th just over a month after the attack. On 17 July, 65 injured were still in hospital, 18 in critical condition. At least ten of the dead were children. The figure of 434 indicates the total number of people admitted into hospital with injuries due to the attack; some of whom were not admitted immediately. Of the 86 dead, 43 were French nationals and the remaining 43 were nationals of 18 countries other than France, the most recent victim's nationality is unconfirmed. It was also reported that some of the victims were Muslims. A regional Islamic association claimed "more than one third" of the victims were Muslims. (Wikipedia)
