I hate posting these things , it’s heartbreaking and infuriating:

More than 73 people are dead and 150 injured after a large truck ran over countless people during Bastille Day celebrations.

Reports indicate one suspect is dead while another is currently at large. Conflicting reports also claim that hostages have been taken in multiple locations – although the French Interior Ministry denied those reports on Twitter.

ISIS supporters celebrated the attack online while official ISIS propaganda channels praised the attack as well…

(CNN) At least 75 people were killed late Thursday night when a large truck plowed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, according to CNN affiliate BFM-TV, citing Regional President Christian Estrosi.

The driver pointed his tractor-trailer into the crowd and accelerated, mowing bodies over. The driver was shot to death, authorities said. At least 100 people were injured, authorities said.
Here are the latest developments in the tragedy:
• The attack in Nice, France, began when an occupant of the truck shot into the crowd and then drove for 2 kilometers along the pavement of the Boulevard des Anglais, the main street in Nice, regional President Christian Estrosi told CNN affiliate BFM-TV. He said police later found firearms, explosives and grenades in the truck.
• Anti-terror prosecutors have taken over the investigation, according to BFMTV, citing the prosecutor’s office.
• Preliminary information from French officials is that there was one individual in the truck, according to a U.S. law enforcement official briefed on the attack. The individual, a male, was killed by police and it does not appear there was any gunfire from the truck, according to the official.
