The heinous terror attack in Nice, France was reflected on the front pages of prominent newspapers across the world Friday. At least 84 people were killed when a man drove a truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day or French National Day in the capital of French Riviera.

A 31-year-old French Tunisian citizen is believed to have been behind the wheel of the truck which dragged through for almost two kilometres. Guns and ammunition were recovered from the truck after the driver was shot down by police.

World leaders including US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed sadness at the incident and resolved to help France in its moment of grief.
