ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Police on Friday (July 15) removed the truck used in attack that left at least 84 people in the Southern French city of Nice the night before. A police motorcade escorted a tow truck pulling the truck, on the windshield of which gun shot marks could still be seen. Suspect Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel plowed a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on the French Riviera, in what President Francois Hollande called a terrorist act by an enemy determined to strike all nations that share France's values. While he had several run-ins with the law previously, Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Nice resident born in Tunisia, was not on a watch list of French intelligence services as a suspected militant. He was married with three children, but had marital problems, Tunisian security sources said. He was not known by the Tunisian authorities to hold radical or Islamist views, and had held French residence.
