Assigning blame for Nice attack

By Staff Writer - July 21, 2016

France’s minister of the interior has asked the body in charge of investigating police practices to evaluate and report on the security measures in force in Nice on July 14, the day on which 84 people lost their lives in a terror attack.

“This administrative enquiry will permit the establishment of the reality of the situation, even in the midst of unnecessary controversies,” the ministry said. Truth and transparency are due to the victims and their families, the ministry added.

In the wake of the terror attack, there has been spate of accusations and counter-accusations between local officials and the central government, with each side blaming the other for inadequate security measures that allowed the perpetrator of the attack to gain access to the Promenade des Anglais while at the wheel of a heavy refrigerated truck.
