Bastille Day Truck Attack: Man dies from injuries three weeks after

Start of the annual Bastille Day military parade in Paris before a truck plowed into the crowd, killing many and injuring many more.

A man died on Thursday from injuries suffered three weeks earlier in the truck attack on crowds in the Riviera city of Nice, bringing the death toll to 85, authorities said.

Pierre Hattermann’s wife Francoise and son were killed in the attack, and his 14-year-old daughter is still in hospital, according to French newspaper Nice Matin and other media.

“All my thoughts with the daughter, family and relatives of Pierre Hattermann who just died,” the president of the Riviera region, Christian Estrosi, said on his Twitter account.

Islamic State claimed the attack and hailed Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who drove a truck through a crowd of revellers on Nice’s sea-front promenade on Bastille day before police shot him dead.
