Update Nice 77 Dead Over A 50 Injured

Paris fire near Eiffel Tower appears to be fireworks malfunction.

 

Dozens were killed Thursday when a large box truck drove into a crowd of people who had gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks show in the southern French city of Nice, officials said.

Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said on Twitter that there appeared to be “dozens” of fatalities, while the French TV channel BFM reported that at least 60 people had died.

No casualty figures were immediately given by authorities.
