PARIS, July 15. /TASS/. The incident in Nice when dozens of people were killed when a truck hit a crowd of people was a terrorist attack, French President Francois Hollande said in an address to the nation.
"This was an attack, whose terrorist nature cannot be denied," Hollande said.
He said he decided to use reservists to ensure security in the country.
Hollande said that the country should be on alert. "The entire France is under the threat of Islamist terrorism. We should display perfect vigilance," Hollande said.
He added that France plans to increase the intensity of strikes on Islamists in Iraq and Syria after Thursday’s incident.
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 77 people, including many children, has been officially confirmed. Several dozen sustained injuries, 20 of them are in critical condition.
