Truck driver in deadly Nice attack identified

According to a tweet from CNN, the driver of the truck that drove into a crowd at Bastille Day ceremonies has been identified as Mohamad Lahouaiej Bouhel.

The French anti-terrorism official said Bouhel is a 31-year-old French-Tunisian and resident of Nice.

About 50 people are critically hurt as a result of Thursday’s deadly terrorist attack in Nice, French President Francois Hollande said Friday. His comments came at a prefecture headquarters in Nice after he visited some of the victims at a hospital.
“We have an enemy who is going to continue to strike all the people, all the countries who have freedom as a fundamental value,” Hollande said.
He referred to the attack as “an unspeakable act.” He added: “Why Nice? Because it’s a town famous across the world, (a) beautiful town, one of the most beautiful (in the world.) Why the 14th of July? Because it” was Bastille Day, celebrating freedom.
