    The Polish Foreign Ministry confirms that two Polish women died when a gunman drove a truck into a crowd of revelers in the southern French resort of Nice, the ministry’s spokesman said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The truck assault on the crowd marking the Bastille Day on the Nice seafront killed 84 people, almost half of them foreign visitors, according to French authorities.

    "Poland's consulate general in Lyon has received an official confirmation from France that the Nice terror attack on July 14 left two female Polish nationals dead," Rafal Sobczak told the Polish news agency PAP.

    The attacker was killed in a standoff with police. He was identified as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Nice resident of Tunisian descent who the Daesh terror group claimed was its follower.
