MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A truck rammed into a large crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice last Thursday, killing at least 84 people and hurting hundreds, including children and foreign tourists from all over the world.
"We expect the government to tell the truth about the chain of events leading up to the tragedy in Nice. The victims and their relatives demand this. The nation must know this. We demand that a parliamentary inquiry commission be put in place. Nothing must remain hidden," the communique reads.
The party’s core members in the political bureau also proposed extending the current state of emergency in France by a minimum of six months, and allow customs and police officers to carry out identity and vehicle checks in order to boost national security.
