Eighty-four people were killed on Thursday night, after a large truck ran into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France — the attack was caught on video.

Nice Terror Attack Video Is Released

The truck can be seen rolling down the Promenade des Anglais, the main street in Nice, before crashing into a crowd of people who were gathered to watch the Bastille Day fireworks.

Police reportedly shot and killed the driver — officers also discovered firearms, explosives and grenades hidden within the truck.

“We cannot deny that it was a terror attack,” France President Francois Hollande said in a national television address. “Human rights are denied by fanatics and France is quite clearly their target.”

Hollande insisted that an existing state of emergency, put in place in the wake of the Paris attacks in November 2015 and due to expire later this month, be extended for three more months.
