Islamic State claimed responsibility on Saturday for the truck attack that killed at least 84 people celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice and police arrested three more people there in connection with the seafront carnage.

“He carried out the operation in response to calls to target nationals of states that are part of the coalition fighting Islamic State.”
