ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Prime Minister Theresa May condemns the deadly Bastille Day attack in Nice, France in which at least 84 people were killed when the driver of a truck rams into pedestrians. May said the UK will continue to supports France as they've done in the past. "I will speak with President Hollande today and make clear that the United Kingdom stands shoulder to shoulder with France today as we have done so often in the past. If as we fear this was a terrorist attack, then we must redouble our efforts to defeat these brutal murderers who want to destroy our way of life." The driver, identified by a police source as a 31-year-old Tunisian-born Frenchman, also appeared to open fire before officers shot him dead. The man was not on the watch list of French intelligence services, but was known to the police in connection with common crimes such as theft and violence, the source said.
