At least 84 people were killed Thursday in the French city of Nice when a truck rammed through a crowd gathered for Bastille Day celebrations, in an attack that President François Hollande described as an act of “terrorism.”
Police have identified 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel as the suspect who is a migrant to France and married with three children.
Although no one has claimed responsibility, Muslims from the so called Islamic State and their supporters took to Twitter to celebrate the attacks.
““Oh France, you and the all Europe will never be secure until we will live secure on every inch in the land of the Caliphate,” wrote one user.
“This is the beginning of the attack to take the holy revenge for the killing of Abu Omar Shishani, may Allah accept him,” another said on an Isis forum.
Thousands of Twitter users have shown their support by posting with the hashtag ‘Pray for Nice’ but ISIS told their followers to use the same hashtag in their celebration tweets.
