    UK Ambassador to France Julian King said on Friday he had left for the French southern city of Nice to coordinate assistance to British citizens following attack on the city.

    LONDON (Sputnik) — Late on Thursday evening, a heavy truck hit a crowd celebrating the Bastille Day in Nice, killing 84 and injuring dozens.

    "On my way to Nice to join our team assisting British nationals. Solidarity with the town after this horrific attack," King wrote on his Twitter.

    The driver was shot dead by police. According to documents found inside the truck, he was a 31-year-old man who was a resident of Nice of Tunisian origin.
