On July 14 2016, tragedy struck in the midst of celebrations of Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France. Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a Tunisian resident of France, deliberately drove a 19 tonne cargo truck into the large crowd of revelers. The celebration called ‘Prom Party’ was attended by a crowd of approximately thirty thousand people. A total of eighty-four persons were killed and approximately another three hundred and eight, injured. The driver was killed by police who engaged him in a gun battle, ending the gruesome attack.
