(CNN)The former mayor of Nice, France, tweeted that a truck ran into a crowd on Bastille Day, killing multiple people.

Christian Estrosi, currently the head of the regional council of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, said late Thursday that there are "tens of dead."

"Dear Nice residents, the driver of a truck appears to have caused tens of deaths. Stay for the moment in your homes. More info to come."

CNN affiliate BFM-TV reported that police and the truck occupants exchanged gunfire.

Gunfire suggests another terror attack possibly in France.

Could it be anyone but Muslims?

Terrorists have many weapons at their disposal other than firearms!

UF loves it there.

She does.

Gunfire not confirmed. Possible confusion with fireworks according to BBC (UK) and BFM (France).

Horrendous and deeply saddening. Revealing to see you gloating Mickey.

It may of may not be. But then again people often rush to judgement. Many never miss their chance.

Could be anyone or any group. Doesn't have to be Muslims. It could be, but whats the point in jumping to conclusions? Oh, that's right, political ideology. :roll:

I'm not gloating, just shaking my head from the denial I view by liberals everywhere.

No need to jump to conclusions. We still have no idea who did this or what their motivations were.

1. I'm not a liberal.
2. You're gloating above.
3. Looking at your avatar and seeing you whinge about liberals in denial makes me think pot, kettle and black.
4. It took a matter of minutes to mention muslims. Well done.

We need truck control NOW!

I am sure the usual suspects will be along any minute to demand the AR15 be banned. I am sure they will see the truck as an assault rifle through those magic lenses they use.

Thank you.

My avatar is as true as it gets.

What is whinge, some sort of colloquial term?


btw, first hand report from France, on the radio now by phone....the fireworks were done and gunfire followed.

About the size of garbage truck. Caller laying low during gunfire.
