Nice attack commemorations: Prime Minister Jean Castex in the city for a ceremony • FRANCE 24

FRANCE24, 14 Jul 2021
For most French people, Bastille Day is synonymous with military pomp and parties, but in the southern city of Nice the country's national holiday also conjures up visions of horror. On Wednesday July 14th, the Mediterranean city pauses to mark five years since a man drove a 19-tonne truck into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day on the waterfront, killing 86 people. Prime Minister Jean Castex will visit the city for a ceremony at the site of the only existing memorial for the victims, a fountain located in a municipal garden set back from the seafront promenade.
