Police shine a light into the cab as they approach the driver's cab of a truck, in Nice, France, late Thursday July 14, 2016. A large truck plowed through revelers gathered for Bastille Day fireworks in Nice, killing at least 84 people and sending others fleeing into the sea as it bore down for more than a mile (2 Km) along the Riviera city's famed waterfront promenade. The driver was killed by police and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the Thursday night attack. (NADER EL SHAFEI via AP) MANDATORY CREDIT
