France terror Attack: 80 killed, 18 injured as driver rams truck into crowd celebrating Bastille day and opens fire

A terrorist killed 80 people and injured several when he drove a truck at high speed into a crowd watching Bastille day fireworks in Nice, France late on Thursday at around 11.00p.m local time.

The man also opened fire on the crowd and police as he drove through the crowd. Witnesses say he drove in a zig zag manner so that he could hit as many people as possible. It is also reported that he drove into the crowd for 2 km at a speed of about 50km/h

Reports says he was gunned down by the police

The police is trying to determine if he had accomplices.

The French president, Fran├žois Hollande, described the attack as a “monstrosity” and said soldiers would be deployed to support gendarmes and police, particularly at the country’s borders. He said the attack was “terrorist in nature” and vowed France would always be stronger than the fanatics that want to attack her.

The country’s state of emergency, which was due to expire on 26 July, is to be extended for three months.

No terrorist organisation has claimed responsibility yet.

#ThisFlag: Pastor Evan Mawarire released....

It was jubilation and praise yesterday when the convener of the "Shut Down Zimbabwe", Pastor Evan Mawarire was set free.

He had planned a work boycott this week Wednesday and Thursday but was arrested by the police on Tuesday to sabotage the planned boycott. He staged a successful one day boycott last week and intended to do another one this week.

Mawarire was facing charges of subverting a constitutionally elected government.

He was initially charged with inciting public violence in the morning when he was brought to the court. However when he appeared before magistrate Mr Vakayi Chikwekwe in the afternoon, the State had changed his charge to subverting a constitutionally-elected Government.
