PHOTOS: French resort town suffers worst ever atrocity

IT IS now considered the worst atrocity ever visited on the southern French town of Nice.

The official death toll now stands at 77, after a truck was driven into a jubilant crowd celebrating Bastille Day on the famed Promenade Des Anglais.

The man behind the wheel is reportedly shot dead.

This is the tenth attack, yet to be confirmed as a terrorist plot, to be carried out in France since January last year.

The world has already begun paying tribute and showing solidarity with the French.
