Last night’s devastating terrorist attack in Nice, France, claimed at least 84 lives and threw the world into turmoil yet again. The attack brought the city’s Bastille Day celebrations to an abrupt halt when a truck crashed through a crowd gathered for the holiday.
Immediately the world shared their support, and President Obama said, “On behalf of the American people, I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France." The U.S. Embassy issued a warning for traveling U.S. citizens, urging them to use caution.
