Mourning for Nice: Tears in France and beyond

People in France and places as far away as Australia and the US unite in mourning for the victims of Nice lorry attack.

Hundreds of people have gathered at a makeshift memorial in the French city of Nice to honour the victims of a devastating lorry attack on the country's national holiday that killed at least 84 people.

In Nice, the seaside streets that would normally be bustling on a summer weekend are near-deserted, with grieving residents making their way to the the area where the lorry mowed through revelers to lay down flowers in memory of the dead.

At least 10 children and teenagers were among the dead, as well as tourists from the United States, Russia, Ukraine, Switzerland and Germany.

France declared three days of mourning following the attack on Bastille Day.
