ULAN BATOR, July 15. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday expressed condolences to those affected by the terrorist attack in the southern French city of Nice.
"I would like to join words of condolences to France, to all those affected as well as relatives of those killed in the heinous terrorist attack in Nice," Medvedev said speaking at an Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) forum plenary session that opened in the capital of Mongolia on Friday.
"Terrorism is known to have no borders and be a common challenge both for Europe and Asia. As of now, regrettably, 80 people, including children, a great amount of tourists, have been killed," he said.
There were thousands of people at the moment of the attack on Thursday evening on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, who were leaving the place after a festive firework display on the occasion of Bastille Day. A truck rammed into the crowd at full speed. The truck’s driver was shot dead by the police. An investigation is underway.
The death of nearly 80 people, including many children, has been officially confirmed. Several dozen sustained injuries, 20 of them are in critical condition.
