>> Two days after the slaughter of over 80 people in Nice, and the city's businesses say they're beginning to feel the economic fallout. I'm Tom Borgen with Reuters on the Promenade des Anglais, and these should be humming with high spending visitors. However, restauranteurs, hoteliers, and shop keepers say after the truck attack on Thursday business is down significantly.

Business people say they hope that this is just a temporary lull, but already one hotelier told me that she'd already cancelled plans to take on additional workers this summer.
