Passengers were evacuated from Nice airport, an AP coresspondent reported. One of the terminals was sealed off and military personnel were visible inside.

Troops were deployed to the Nice airport and an evacuation started after suspicious luggage was found.​

​On Thursday night, a truck rammed into a large crowd that was celebrating the Bastille Day in Nice. At least 84 people, including children, were killed and dozens of others were injured.

Currently the airport is operating normally. Air traffic at Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport, that has been previously evacuated, returns back to normal,  a spokeswoman for the airport told Sputnik on Friday.

“Usually when there is a luggage which has no property, we get rid it and that is what happened today. The traffic is back to normal,” Geraldine Giraud said.

“It is a safety procedure,” she pointed out.

It comes after a truck rammed into a large crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in Nice on Thursday. At least 84 people, including children, were killed and dozens of others were injured.
