Up to 60 dead as truck rams into Bastille Day crowd in French city

French President Francois Hollande was en route to Paris for crisis talks, and US President Barack Obama was briefed on the situation.
Australian terrorism expert Greg Barton from Deakin University said the scale and "clear deliberate intent" indicated the attack was most likely the work of Islamic State terrorists.
"The logic of using a heavily laden truck at speed into a crowd where they can't run away, you can see how devastating the effect of it is," he told ABC News 24.
"And you can imagine cells in France talking among themselves of opportunities they had, what they had at hand, and it's no surprise they have come up with something like this."
