18 people are critically injured
The attack in Nice has left 84 dead and 18 in a critical condition, France's Interior Ministry spokesman reported on July 15.
The attacker, identified by a police source as a 31-year-old Tunisian-born Frenchman, ploughed his heavy truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day at the seafront Promenade des Anglais.
He also opened fire before police shot him dead. The Gunman had been known to the police for common crimes but not to the intelligence services, the source said.
The attack, which came eight months after Islamic State gunmen and suicide bombers struck Paris, seemed so far to be the work of a lone assailant.
