Paris, the city hit by multiple deadly attacks in the past year, woke up on Friday to news of yet another devastating attack. This time, it was a gunman who drove a truck at high speed into a crowd in the southern city of Nice, killing at least 84. Parisians are in shock. (SOUNDBITE) (French) PARIS RESIDENT ORIGINALLY FROM ROMANIA, YULIA, SAYING: "I don't have the words. I don't have the strength to say anything." (SOUNDBITE) (French) PARIS RESIDENT, JOSEPH, SAYING: "It's shaken me because using a lorry to go into a crowd of people and to kill them in cold blood, it's not normal. It's not a human act." The city's flags now fly at half-staff. French President Francois Hollande, who traveled to Nice to meet with victims, is calling the incident at terrorist act. The attack comes after Islamic State gunmen and suicide bombers struck Paris last November, killing 130 people. Before that, three days of violence that began with the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office left 17 dead. One resident from Corsica blames the government for the increasing attacks. (SOUNDBITE) (French) CORSICAN RESIDENT, CHARLIE, SAYING: "I think it's because all the heads of government, whether they are national or European, have been lax. After years of neglect and being lax, we have come to this point." France is now entering three days of national mourning, as they cope with yet another attack.
