IT IS now considered the worst atrocity ever visited on the southern French town of Nice.
The official death toll now stands at 77, after a truck was driven into a jubilant crowd celebrating Bastille Day on the famed Promenade Des Anglais.
The man behind the wheel is reportedly shot dead.
This is the tenth attack, yet to be confirmed as a terrorist plot, to be carried out in France since January last year.
The world has already begun paying tribute and showing solidarity with the French.
