Amnesty International utterly condemns the despicable attack in Nice, which has left over 80 dead and many more injured. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, which President Hollande has described as being of a “terrorist nature”.

Amnesty International’s Europe Director, John Dalhuisen said:

“We are all deeply shocked by the appalling attack in Nice. We grieve with those who lost loved ones, and stand united with those opposing terror with freedom, fairness and the respect for human rights.”
