French President Francois Hollande calls an attack in the resort town of Nice a terrorist assault and vows to continue fighting extremists. Rough Cut-subtitled (no reporter narration).
SUBTITLED ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) French President Francois Hollande condemned an attack in the southern resort town of Nice in which at least 80 people were killed when a truck was driven into a crowd of people. Hollande said the attack was clearly a terrorist assault and that the state of emergency imposed since a previous attack on Paris last November would be extended for another three months. "France is afflicted by this new tragedy. It is horrified by what just happened. This monstrosity that consists of using a truck to kill, deliberately kill, dozens of people who were simply there to celebrate July 14th (Bastille Day). France is mourning, it is afflicted, but it is strong, and it will always be stronger, I assure you, than the fanatics who want to strike it today." Hollande spoke after an emergency meeting in the early hours of Friday morning. The truck was driven at high speed into dense crowds who were watching a fireworks display on the country's national Bastille Day holiday.
