Video: Nice attack - Islamic State claim responsibility for 84 dead


Islamic State has claimed the lorry driver who massacred at least 84 people in Nice was "a soldier" who responded to calls to attack its enemies.

Five people have been arrested following the Bastille Day attack, which injured more than 200 people on the Promenade des Anglais, according to officials.

Inquiries were continuing into whether 31-year-old driver Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel acted alone or had accomplices before he drove a 19-tonne hired truck at speed into scores of people before he was shot dead by police.
