More from Hollande:
“We have visited scores of injured, who have horrendous images in their heads. They are suffering more because of the psychological trauma. Even people who have no signs of physical injury, will carry throughout their lives the trauma of the horrific images they saw.

“I have tears in my spirit about this young policeman who acted so that killer should be neutralised, and put an end to the carnage. The security services have answered all the demands and the calls upon them.

He said the authorities want to find out if there are accomplices that pose a threat to the population.
In addition to the 84 victims Hollande said:
“There are 50 other people who are still receiving emergency treatment. They are between life and death. Amongst the victims are French citizens as well as foreigners, who came from all continents. And there are a number of young children who came to watch fireworks with their families, who have been struck down just to satisfy the cruelty of one individual or possible of a group.”
