AT least 84 people have died, including at least 10 children, after a terror attack during Bastille Day celebrations in southern France.

A crazed gunman, named as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel by local media, zig-zagged through crowds watching the town’s annual fireworks “like a bowling ball” for more than a mile before opening fire at men, women and children.

Bouhlel - Pavement - Groups - Truck - Fire

Bouhlel mounted the pavement, mowing down groups at 40mph, before reportedly jumping out of the truck and opening fire as he shouted “Allahu Akbar” – God is greatest.

A further 18 people are thought to be in a critical condition and 54 children were taken to hospital after the atrocity at around 10.30pm last night.

ID documents belonging to a 31-year-old French Tunisian were found in the 25-tonne truck after the attacker was shot dead by police, according to security sources.
