UPDATE: 9:49 PM ET

Terrorist in Nice Truck Attack Was City Resident of Tunisian Origin

[...] 

Heavy weapons and grenades were found inside the truck.

French newspaper Le Figaro reports that driver fired at the crowd as he drove.

While the terrorist group Daesh, also known as IS/ISIL, has not officially claimed responsibility for the attack, it is a likely suspect.

UPDATE: 9:44 PM ET

According to an eyewitness report cited by BFM, the driver of the truck shouted, “Allahu Akbar!” before the attack.

UPDATE: 9:30 PM ET US Government reminds us that we have to take every opportunity, like a major terrorist attack, to tell people that Islamic terrorism done by Muslims has nothing to do with Islam and Muslims are the real victims:

UPDATE 8:28 PM ET: There appears to be no hostage situation as was reported by the Daily Mail earlier. 

Islamic State celebrates the attack

At least 75 people were killed and dozens more were injured when a truck barreled through a large crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day, a French holiday commemorating the storming of the famous Parisian fortress in 1789, an important milestone in the French Revolution. The driver of the truck reportedly was killed by French authorities.

“Oh France, you and the all Europe will never be secure until we will live secure on every inch in the land of the Caliphate,” wrote one ISIS supporter whose Twitter account has since been suspended. “This is the beginning of the attack to take the holy revenge for the killing of Abu Omar Shishani, may Allah accept him,” a jihadi posted on the ISIS al-Minbar forum shortly after the attack.

The Eiffel Tower i Paris appears to be on fire at this time also.

 

This video is alleged to be of the truck itself as it sped up towards people:

UPDATE 7:21 The Telegraph Eastern: 72 dead now. Guns and grenades found in the truck

Local officials are saying it was a CRIMINAL attack. No reports of any robbery of the dead or injured have been reported however.

PARIS, July 14 (Reuters) - At least 30 people were killed and 100 injured in the French Riviera city of Nice late on Thursday when a truck ploughed into crowds watching a fireworks display on France's Bastille Day national holiday in a criminal attack, a local official said.

The driver, who drove at high speed for over 100 metres (yards) along the famed Promenade des Anglais seafront before hitting the mass of spectators, was shot dead, sub-prefect Sebastien Humbert told France Infos radio.

Humbert described it as a clear criminal attack, although the driver was not yet identified. Residents of the Mediterranean city close to the Italian border were advised to stay indoors. There was no sign of any other attack.

The Daily Mail reports that hostages have been taken in two locations as well.

 

UPDATE: 6:40 ET

The gunmen have taken hostages 

UPDATE: The SUN UK:

At least SIXTY DEAD and a HUNRED injured

UPDATE: GRAPHIC VIDEO

You can see video of the crowds running in terror here, and here.

Today is 14 July, which in France is Bastille day, the French equivalent of America's July 4th. It certainly makes for a likely day for a terrorist attack.

France’s national holiday turned ugly for revelers Thursday night in the southern city of Nice, as a truck reportedly crashed into a crowd of Bastille Day revelers and fears of terrorism spread.

Multiple videos posted on BreakingNews.com showed people fleeing in panic, though the crash itself wasn’t shown.

There also were reports of gunshots, though fireworks are often set off on Bastille Day, making such early witness accounts questionable.

More as it comes in. 

 UPDATE: Several dozen people injured

BBC: 

The local prefecture has urged people in the area to remain indoors, calling the incident "an attack".

The photo the BBC refers to in the article linked above is available to be seen here.

The Daily Mail:

Dozens dead as truck RAMS into Bastille Day crowds in Nice 'terror attack' leaving bodies strewn across the road as witness reports a gunman is still on the loose

Eye Witness:

"saw moving truck driving full speed over crowd on promenade for at least 2-3 miles. Then massive gunfire."

On her twitter feed, the witness confirms GUNFIRE on the crowd

Same witness:

I'm in and cannot describe the situation- scary awful. Dead bodies everywhere people killed in front of my eyes. Had to b planned

FOX NEWS: Dozens dead in France

R DECHIKO… What you have noted re limiting comment is what I have posted numerous times about the blatant growth of “controlling the news as we want to hear it” in the Canadian press corps… While the CBC is a given, the real disappointment is the National Post now playing the same game… It started going into the last federal election and has continued unabated…

@jim Clark – further to what you said, if there were ever a terrorist group out there holding the banner of Christianity and doing things like this, there would massive revolt and protesting from Christians themselves. Where are all the muslims protesting at the actions and beliefs of ISIS? Pfft.

Jesus was a man of pure heart. He gave away everything he owned so the poor could suffer less. He wandered the countryside preaching brotherly love.

Mohammed was a warlord. His life’s main goal was expanding his empire by force. He was a dictator who made a cult of personality, as most dictators do, and it got way out of hand. He was also a rapist of children.

The worst Christians sometimes insult gays and show up at public events with offensive protest signs.

The worst Muslims commit mass killings and they are efficient at it. No one will ever top Sept. 11’s death toll, unless one of Mohammed’s people finally assembles an improvised nuke.

Christianity was changed by the Renaissance, as were all the Christian peoples. Reason replaced faith as our main method of decision making.

Islam sat out the Renaissance entirely. They spent that time demolishing observatories and burning down libraries so scholars could focus on the most important thing around: writing more Korans using caligraphy.

We need to accept these truths so we can understand our enemy. They are us as we were 1000 years ago, but they are using our weaponry.

So logically…

We have to fight them. We have to annihilate them on their soil. We have to hurt them so badly that for the next thousand years they flee into their caves when they see us.

This is uncomfortable, I know, but life is rarely comfortable, eh?

I find it both incredible and unbelievable that the CBC and National Post have published a number of stories on this terrible event, and not one of them (that I have seen) allow for commenting.

W in the F is that all about? Are they afraid that people will say something negative or politically incorrect about Islam? Common citizens need to be heard in these times.

I guess we should ban trucks, or declare war against them, or something.

Our tax payer funded CBC has the following headline regarding the terrorist attack in Nice, France.
TRUCK ATTACK KILLS 84 IN NICE, FRANCE

Was watching CNN for a few minutes after latest attack in France last night. 3 panelists put the blame on France, claiming immigrants weren’t properly assimilated in their culture and it’s the west that is evil for blaming all Muslims, a tune sensible people are sick of hearing. 4th panelist blew them out of the water by pointing out that these people are hell bent on killing us no matter what. If they aren’t being assimilated into western cultures it is because they don’t want to be. Taking over is their goal by imposing sharia law. They don’t want to be like us, but rather force us to be like them.
commented 2016-07-15 10:33:55 -0400
WE DON"T FUCKING CARE ABOUT THE DISTINCTIONS! WE WAN’T ACTION! Sensible people know it is not all muslims and that muslims are victims too. We don’t need it repeated on a daily basis by liberal ostriches. Face the fact that this is a religious problem by a barbaric and inferior society and actually do something about it.

THIS STORY JUST ACROSS THE DESK;

In an act of defiance aimed at terrorists ‘who certainly are not muslims’, Canada’s Prime Minister has announced the formation of a ‘Long Truck Registry’, to ‘assist Canada’s law enforcement teams’ in their task of keeping Canadians safe from ‘these known and dangerous tools of terrorism’. Recalling an incident on the 417 heading into Ottawa last month, the P.M. described his own close encounter with a terrorist truck, that had made an un-signalled turn in front of his limo’ and caused the P.M. to ‘go a little poopy-pants’. It is rumoured, but yet unconfirmed that at least a dozen ‘selfie-sticks’ were damaged in the incident.

We’ve got to get these assault-trucks off the road. There’s absolutely no justification for automatic trucks. And who needs 18-wheels, when 4-wheels will do?!

If I was a French citizen, I would have a huge sign on my lawn promoting Marine Le Pen for the next election. The political elite just do not get it. They are not living in the ghettos that their irresponsible immigration policies have created. Their arrogance and self righteousness has blinded them. Time for a change, France.

Dieter Cunth…. Actually, the “limp-wristed” leader of France, Francois Hollande, is in deep doo-doo after yet another mass attack and even the leftie French press may not be able to save his “derriere”… France is heading to the polls next April and May for presidential elections and although Hollande could legally run again he would have to undergo a “conversion on the road to Damascus” to try to re-incarnate himself as a hard nosed conservative willing to save the French culture… And that’s not going to happen…
commented 2016-07-15 01:57:13 -0400
At this point, I don’t really mind all these attacks. I don’t really care about them, for they are inevitable, now. France is nearly lost, and Belgium is due for another attack.

More attacks; that is the answer. As the volume of attacks piles up, the limp-wristed leadership will carry on with their usual ways until everyone acts upon what they already know: the leadership is cowardly and they are willing to give the whole thing away for the sake of their vanity.

What did the French do to make them angry?
commented 2016-07-15 00:26:42 -0400
I don’t know why they’re making a big deal about this. Monthly mass-murdering Islamic terrorist attacks on first-world cities are the new normal. Maybe we’ll start taking this sort of thing seriously after they detonate a nuclear device, but until then, let’s see how many more dark-ages barbarians we can immigrate this year!

I’m waiting for the CBC to get to the bottom of this and report the perps as NRA members on the way to a Trump rally

The Muslims are killing some of the French.. Maybe, Justin should bring some more to Canada.
commented 2016-07-14 22:41:55 -0400
The French would rather die than be considered Nationalists or racists or Xenophobes. There’s no way to stop this stuff from happening. You could give isil half the land on earth for their caliphate and it wouldn’t stop the murder and mayhem. Everyday I expect the the parasites running the EU to announce that they don’t care what happens in the Middle East but they’d be glad to cede Europe to isil if they just promise not be mean. The Liberal types would be all for it. Oh sure, they’ll be nice.

Time to declare absolute war on these Jihadist cockroaches. Time to smoke these disgusting rats out of the sewers.

Time to CLOSE the borders, time to get rid of the Islamic Muslim Satanic Hordes all over the world. Time to evict all the Chinese spies and criminals with ill-gotten monies and revoke their holdings here. Time to get RID of all illegal ALIENS now. Had enough of the open border democRATs who import Zika, disease, Islam and aliens who steal our jobs? HAD ENOUGH. It is TIME to clean up this mess starting with TRUMP. And after 8 years with President IVANKA. I’m SICK of living like this. I pay all the taxes, obey all the laws, raise my kids with 100% effort and do my WORK. I am DONE supporting the spies, the aliens and kneeling to ISLAM. Time to get rid of the disease in the USA starting with putting Obama in PRISON and chasing the democRATs and RINOs out of here. ITS TIME. TRUMP time.

They all just need a hug. Have you hugged a Muslim today ?
commented 2016-07-14 20:42:02 -0400
LOL!!! Yes had that truck been registered and controlled with tons of laws , it would have stopped that Muslim from climbing in it and mass murdering. Now watch the bastards really push self driving vehicles so nobody is allowed to drive. I am willing to bet that was the strategy. Its all about taking away everyones rights. Time for a revolution folks. I mean a peaceful one.

“Local officials are saying it was a criminal attack”

What rubbish these officials are spewing. Have anybody ever heard of even the worst & ruthless criminals ploughing truck through a crowd of audience watching festivities?? We all know whose handiwork it is.
MSM along with the politicians & bureaucrats should be charged with treason and punished for their crimes against western civilization & people.
