The world reacts to Nice, France attack

The world is reacting with shock and disgust after the driver of a truck ploughed through crowds of people in Nice, France on Thursday night (local time).

At least 84 people were killed and more than 150 injured in the terror attack on the crowd celebrating Bastille Day.

The truck was loaded with weapons and grenades. 

Politicians and celebrities are among those to post Twitter messages condemning the attack and supporting France as the nation attempts to make sense of the horror.

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and former Prime Minister Helen Clark have sent condolences.

Likely US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has postponed the announcement of his running mate in light of the attack.

UK politician Boris Johnson is "shocked and saddened by the appalling events in Nice, and the terrible loss of life".

Journalist Ben Terry says helicopters are now circling over Nice.

And, many more have expressed their sadness.
