July 14, 2016 (Nice, Fra.) - Today is Bastille Day, the French Fourth of July. But the celebration was cut short tonight in the city of Nice, a popular tourist destination in France, as a truck accelerated into a crowd of revelers, killing at least 70 and injuring at least 100 people and French authorities say the death toll is rising. The incident IS being treated as a terrorist attack.
