New Delhi: Photographers who captured the aftermath of the violent Nice terror attack which claimed the lives of 84 innocent civilians stumbled upon a heart-wrenching scene.
In the picture which has gone viral on social media, a victim – covered in a sheet – is seen lying next to a doll. The victim is believed to be a young girl who was killed during the attack.
The photograph was taken by Eric Gaillard, a Reuters photographer, who also took other pictures of the aftermath of the violent onslaught. Some parents attending the Bastille Day event lost their children when the lone terrorist swerved the truck through the crowd and opened fire for 30 minutes.
French President Francois Hollande declared a three-day mourning period for the victims of the terror attack. The State of Emergency was extended in France by three months.
