    Attack on the French southern city of Nice targeted not only innocent people but core values, for which NATO stands, Secretary General of the alliance Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday.

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

    "This attack targeted innocent people and the core values for which NATO stands. But terrorism will never defeat democracy, freedom and our open societies," Stoltenberg said in a statement.

    The secretary general added he was appalled and saddened by the tragedy.
