AT least 84 people, including 10 children, were killed by a suspected ISIS fanatic who ploughed a 25-tonne truck into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day in southern France.

Crazed gunman Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel zig-zagged through crowds watching the Nice's annual fireworks "like a bowling ball" for more than a mile before opening fire at men, women and children.

Bouhlel mounted the pavement, mowing down groups at 40mph, before reportedly jumping out of the truck and opening fire as he shouted "Allahu Akbar" – God is greatest.

Harrowing images this morning show abandoned belongings and empty pushchairs beside covered dead bodies.

Shocking video footage caught the moment the fanatic was shot dead by police as he fired at them from the lorry he used to murder dozens.

After being stopped by armed police, who sprayed more than 40 bullets into the lorry's windscreen, Bouhlel exchanged fire with officers using a 7.65 pistol, before being shot dead.

It remains unclear whether he was shot inside or outside of the lorry, which was reportedly rented "a few days ago".

ID documents belonging to the 31-year-old French Tunisian were found in the 25-tonne truck after he was shot dead by police, according to security sources.

Bouhlel is believed to have moved from Sousse, where 38 people were massacred on a beach last year, to Nice and was known to cops for armed theft and violence, but had no direct links to terrorism….


French Terrorist Pretended To Be Giving Away Ice Cream

The Muslim terrorist who carried out Thursday's terror attack in the French city of Nice reportedly raised a local police officer's suspicions several hours before he began his killing spree.

When the officer approached him, the terrorist asked for permission to park his truck near the boulevard because he claimed that he was going to hand out ice cream in honor of Bastille Day.

During the attack, the terrorist used the truck to murder 84 people.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls gave a speech from the Élysée Palace, saying: "France has been hit in its soul on the 14 July, our national day. They wanted to attack the unity of the French nation. The only dignified response is that France will remain loyal to the spirit of the 14 July and its values."

He then declared three days of national mourning.


Truck terrorist had accomplices
Rachel Kaplan 7/21/16

As French authorities delve into the mystery surrounding the Nice truck attack, a Paris prosecutor announced that Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel had been planning the attack for months, and had accomplices.

Lahouaiej-Bouhlel's friends claim that he showed no signs of radicalization, until a few days before the attack.

Speaking at a press conference today, Prosecutor François Molins explained that despite those claims, pictures and texts on the attacker's phone indicate that he was planning the attack since 2015.

At the moment, France has five suspects in custody for aiding the attack. Molins reported that one of the suspects filmed the scene of the attack the day after. The suspects, four men and one woman, are due to appear in court soon.

Two of the suspects, an Albanian couple, are suspected of supplying Lahouaiej-Bouhlel with a pistol.

Another, aged 22, is believed to have texted Lahouaiej-Bouhlel on the night of the attack, regarding supplying weapons.

Police raided his home, and found a Kalashnikov rifle and ammunition, AFP reports.

France arrests 11 over Nice attack French police arrest 11 people suspected of helping arm the Islamist terrorist who murdered 86 people in Nice. Arutz Sheva Staff, י"ג בכסלו תשע"ז, 12/13/2016

French police on Monday arrested 11 people suspected of helping to arm the Islamist terrorist who murdered 86 people in a truck attack in Nice this past July, sources close to the investigation said, according to AFP.

Ten suspects, including one or more Albanians, were arrested in various parts of Nice and another was detained in the western city of Nantes, the sources said.

The arrests come five months after Tunisian extremist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel plowed a 19-ton truck into a crowd on the Nice seafront.

The victims from 19 different countries were watching a fireworks display on the Bastille Day public holiday. Over 400 people were injured.

The 11 people arrested Monday are believed to have been in contact with three people, including two Albanians, arrested on July 6 and charged with supplying Bouhlel with an assault rifle and a pistol.

Bouhlel used the pistol in a firefight with police who shot him dead at the scene, ending his bloody rampage.

"They (the 11) did not necessarily know about the attack but they are part of a criminal milieu involved in arms smuggling," a source said, adding that the person arrested in Nantes had previously lived in Nice.

Under France's anti-terror laws, they can be held for four days before being brought before a magistrate to face charges or being released.

Six people have been charged so far over alleged links to the 31-year-old killer but investigators have yet to prove that any of them knew what he was planning.

The Islamic State (ISIS) group moved quickly after the attack to claim Bouhlel was one of its followers.

Investigators said he suffered from depression and appeared to have become radicalized very quickly.

The massacre on the Promenade des Anglais was the latest in a series of jihadist attacks that have rocked France over the past two years.

The violence began with the January 2015 attacks on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the Jewish Hyper Cacher supermarket in Paris. It continued 10 months later with coordinated strikes on the capital's Bataclan concert hall, national stadium and cafe terraces.
