MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The IGPN director said that prior to the attack police had assessed the threat level as "classic." Contingent was enough for a scenario involving one or more assailants armed with guns or explosives.
"For an event that was not exceptional…and with no known threats, police forces were not undersized," Marie-France Moneger-Guyomarc’h told reporters.
A terrorist drove a heavy truck through a crowd of revelers marking the Bastille Day in the French city, killing 84 people and injuring hundreds more.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve ordered the IGPN last week to prepare a report on security measures on the night of the attack.
