At least 84 dead as lorry hits crowd

At least 84 people have died, including children, after a lorry struck a crowd marking Bastille Day celebrations in the southern French city of Nice.

It happened on the famous Promenade des Anglais after a firework display. The driver was shot dead and guns and grenades were found inside the lorry.

President Francois Hollande said the attack was of a "terrorist nature".

He extended a state of emergency across France by three months.

France had been on high alert following last November's attacks in Paris in which 130 people died and hundreds were wounded.

The state of emergency had been due to end on 26 July.
