Nice: French Health Minister Marisol Touraine said today that 18 people were still in critical condition, including one child, after the truck massacre in Nice that killed 84.

Touraine said 85 people were still hospitalised, 29 of whom were in intensive care, after the attack claimed by the ISIS which turned a night of Bastille Day celebrations in the Riviera city to horror.

 

Touraine said that there was now only one person among the injured who had yet to be identified.

Over 300 people received medical care in the wake of the attack carried out by Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a Tunisian who smashed a 19-tonne truck into a crowd that had just finished watching a fireworks display.
