FRANCE NICE TRUCK ATTACKFrankryk loop deur onder tereur sedert die Charlie Hebdo aanslag op ’n klomp joernaliste wat geen respek vir moraliteit of godsdiens gehad het met 12 mense dood. Daarna volg ’n aanslag op die skare wat besig was om in ’n lied hartlik saam te sing waarin die satan verheerlik word, met 89 dood en nou 84 met ’n vragmotor doodgery waarvan verskeie beseerdes dit waarskynlik nie sal oorleef nie en baie vir ewig vermink is!

Het die Franse geen begrip van wat besig is om in Frankryk te gebeur nie? Is hulle almal soos Piet Croukamp wat dink dat ’n mens God kan bespot en niks oorkom nie? Of soos ’n magdom Afrikaners wat dit wat in Suid Afrika met die Afrikanervolk gebeur het as blote politiek afmaak? As die aksies om wettige wapens te verbied of aan bande te lê en met aanhoudende lisensie vernuwings die besit daarvan te bemoeilik omdat dit veiligheid bedreig, gaan hulle dit nou met voertuiglisensies ook toepas? Hier is immers meer as 80 mense gedood met ’n enkele voertuig in die hande van een terroris! Die ironie is dat hy met ’n vuurwapen gestuit is!

Die beleid van integrasie is besig om sy tol te eis regdeur Europa. Dit bevoordeel terrorisme wat weer ondersteun word deur die aanslag op vredeliewende mense wat hulleself bewapen het vir verskeie legitieme redes. Die waarde van afsonderlike ontwikkeling is in terugskouing kop en skouers bokant al die beleidsrigtings van rasvermenging uit te styg en veral bevestig deur die “Black Lives Matter” dryf wat Amerika op hol het!

Vragmotordrywer dood 84Another terrorist attack hit France as a truck plowed into a crowd watching Bastille Day festivities in Nice on Thursday, killing at least 84 people and injuring 50 others, French officials said.

French authorities are still gathering information about the horrific incident. Multiple witnesses and officials described the chaotic scene in detail as people were celebrating the festive holiday in French Riviera.

Here's what we know at the moment:

What took place?

A truck smashed through bystanders near the iconic Promenade des Anglais in Nice. People were observing Bastille Day: the anniversary of a mob storming a looming fortress that held political prisoners two days after the French Revolution in Paris started in 1789.

Video footage showed men and women — one or two pushing strollers — racing to get away from the promenade with broken bodies splayed out on the asphalt, some of them piled near one another, others bleeding out onto the roadway or twisted into unnatural shapes.

Witnesses described the horrific scene in gruesome detail.

"The driver was obviously determined to crash — the truck drove onto the pavement eight feet from where we were standing," a witness told a newspaper in Nice-Matin. "I saw people fall, a small child on the ground."

"Thank God we decided not to take the young ones" to see the Bastille Day fireworks, witness Yves Lamorelle told USA TODAY. "I am the only one who went. It was completely crazy, the crowd panicked and everyone was trying to flee."

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls announced three days of national morning, starting Saturday.

How far did the truck drive?  

The truck driver plowed into the unsuspecting crowd over a distance of 2 kilometers (1.2 miles), a local official said. The driver turned onto Promenade des Anglais at about 10:30 p.m. ET, The New York Times reported. Christian Estrosi, the regional council president of the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur, said surveillance footage showed the attacker boarded the truck “in the hills of Nice.”

Sylvie Toffin, a press officer with the local prefecture, said the truck ran over people down the sidewalk near Nice’s Palais de la Mediterranee, a building that fronts the famous seaside boulevard.

“A person jumped onto the truck to try to stop it,” Eric Ciotti, a local lawmaker, told Europe 1 radio. “It’s at that moment that the police were able to neutralize this terrorist. I won’t forget the look of this policewoman who intercepted the killer.”

How many deaths and injuries?

The death toll increased through the night, totaling 84, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed early Friday, The attack left another 50 people injured in the resort town, French officials said. 18 people remain in critical condition, the Associated Press reported.

Who was the truck driver?

The identity of the driver was not disclosed. The French Interior Ministry issued a statement on Twitter confirming the driver of the truck was dead. “The individual who drove the truck was neutralized,” the statement added. “The investigation will determine whether he acted alone.”

Identification belonging to a French-Tunisian man was found in the truck. Officials were investigating whether the ID matched the suspect. AFP and Radio France Internationale (RFI) reported that the attacker had been formally identified, citing sources. RFI said the 31-year-old was the owner of the identity documents found in the truck, and lived in Nice. Local newspaper Nice-Matin named the suspect as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. The attacker has not been named by the authorities.

Who are the victims?

The victims have yet to be officially named. Estrosi said more than 10 children were among the dead. Two Americans were killed in the attack, WFTV reported. It named them as Sean Copeland and his 11-year-old son Brodie. Copeland, 52, was from Austin, Texas, the Huntington Post reported. The two have not been named by authorities.

Hill Country Baseball club wrote in a Facebook post: "You are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. Rest in peace, Brodie and Sean, you will be remembered by many."

What was found inside the truck?

Estrosi said the truck was loaded with arms and grenades. He told BFM TV that “the driver fired on the crowd, according to the police who killed him.”

Was the incident terror-related?

It's not immediately clear at this point, though French authorities certainly feel so. France president Francois Hollande said the truck attack was of a "terrorist character."

Hollande spoke to the nation hours after the attack and extended France's state of emergency by three months. The state of emergency, originally scheduled to end July 26, was in place stemming from the January and November 2015 attacks that, together, left almost 150 people dead.

“We have to demonstrate absolute vigilance,” Hollande said in his press conference, adding, “We have to increase ... our level of protection. France as a whole is under threat of Islamic terrorism."

Hollande summoned a defense council meeting Friday with other key ministers and officials, before heading to Nice. The French leader plans to call up additional reserves to help police, particularly at French borders.

Did the attacker act alone?

Estrosi called for the investigation to focus on any accomplices, the Associated Press reported. “Attacks aren’t prepared alone. Attacks are prepared with accomplices. There is a chain of complicity. I expect it to be unveiled, discovered and kept up to date,” he said.
