Eighty-four people were killed in the terrorist attack Thursday night in Nice, France, including two Americans.
A truck drove through a crowd of people who were attending a Bastille Day celebration before police shot and killed the driver.
The attack left many others wounded, including at least 18 people who are critically injured.
"We will not give in to the terrorist threat," French Prime Minister Manuel Valls stated Friday morning. "The times have changed, and France is going to have to live with terrorism."
The Paris area faced terrorist attacks in January and November of 2015, which killed a total of 147 people.
President Barack Obama released the following statement Thursday on the attack in Nice:
On behalf of the American people, I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France, which killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and other loved ones of those killed, and we wish a full recovery for the many wounded. I have directed my team to be in touch with French officials, and we have offered any assistance that they may need to investigate this attack and bring those responsible to justice. We stand in solidarity and partnership with France, our oldest ally, as they respond to and recover from this attack.
On this Bastille Day, we are reminded of the extraordinary resilience and democratic values that have made France an inspiration to the entire world, and we know that the character of the French Republic will endure long after this devastating and tragic loss of life
