    Danish Red-Green Alliance party is calling on the authorities of the European countries to evaluate the security situation in the bloc and to take appropriate actions, without resorting to aggression in wake of attack in Nice, party's spokesman Pelle Dragsted told Sputnik Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday night, a truck rammed into a large crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France. At least 84 people, including children, were killed and dozens of others were injured.

    "I think the most important thing to do at this kind of the moment is to keep cool and evaluate very thoroughly what kind of actions are the right ones to take. It is very important that we are not doing what the terrorists want us to do by curtailing our own freedom and changing our way of life, or by taking aggressive action – it could lead to a spiral of more violence. The important thing now is to make the authorities discuss and evaluate what has been going on and then take appropriate actions afterwards," Dragsted said.

    The truck driver was shot dead by police. According to identification documents found inside the truck, the driver was a 31-year-old male Nice resident of Tunisian origin. It is unclear whether he had any accomplices.
