France must "learn to live with terrorism", the country's prime minister has said, as he announced three days of national mourning beginning on Saturday
“Terrorism is a threat that is weighing heavily on France,” Manuel Valls said.
"We’re faced with a war that terrorism has brought against us. The goal of the terrorists is to make us scared. We won’t give in to the terrorist threat, we must stand together, united. France has been once again struck in our flesh.
"Times have changed and we should learn to live with terrorism. We have to show solidarity and collective calm. France has been hit in its soul on the 14 July, our national day.
“They wanted to attack the unity of the French nation. The only dignified response is that France will remain loyal to the spirit of the 14 July and its values.”
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls faced boos and calls to resign as he laid a wreath for the 84 people killed in the lorry attack in Nice.
Hours later Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a 19-tonne lorry down the promenade killing 84 people and injuring 200 more.
France's prime minister stated on Sunday he believed the man behind the Nice lorry attack was radicalised "very quickly"
