A US student studying in France has been confirmed as the latest victim in the Nice truck massacre.

Nicolas Leslie, a student at the University of California, Berkeley, had been studying in Nice at the time of Thursday's terrorist attack.

Leslie, 20, was one of 85 people participating in a summer entrepreneurship programme in Nice. He was among four Berkeley students to be caught up in the deadly attack which claimed the lives of 84 people.

His death was reported to campus officials by the FBI on Sunday.

Berkeley's Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said: "All of us in the UC Berkeley family — both here on campus, and around the world — are heartbroken to learn that another promising young student has been lost to senseless violence.

"I join Nick’s parents, friends and the entire campus community in condemning this horrific attack, and in mourning the loss of one of our own".
