The attack was carried out by a man in a lorry, who ploughed a celebratory group.
His truck was reportedly filled with replica weapons, including two Kalashnikovs, an M16, one grenade, an automatic firearm, a charger, bullets, and a second second automatic weapon.
The driver has been identified Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Tunisian-born Frenchman.
