Time: President Hollande Extends France’s State of Emergency After Nice Attack
French President François Hollande announced that he would extend his country’s state of emergency — due to end July 26 — by an additional three months, following the deadly attack in Nice Thursday when a truck plowed into a crowd of people, killing at least 80.
Hollande condemned the attack as a “monstrosity,” and said there could be no doubt that it was an act of terror. “France as a whole is under the threat of Islamic terrorism,” he said. “We have to demonstrate absolute vigilance and show determination that is unfailing.”
Following Hollande’s speech, French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed that the death toll had risen to 80. Dozens were injured in the attack, with 18 in a critical condition.
