>> United in their grief. Remembering those brutally killed as they celebrated all that France stands for. At least 84 people lost their lives when an attacker drove a heavy truck into crowds of people on the country's National Day. It's been 24 hours since the deadly massacre that hit these streets right here on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice last night.

People here coming to lay messages, to light candles, to place flowers. I've read all sorts of messages in French, in Spanish, in English, German, Arabic, all along similar lines. Things like the terrorism must stop. Stop these attacks on our streets. And one particular one which says we must remember to love one another whilst we're still here.

There are also people praying behind me. In fact, the hashtag PrayForNice has gone global as everyone tries to sort of come to terms with what's happened.>> And then all of a sudden, there was a tidal wave of people just running past. Pure chaos and panic, and people didn't have a sense of what was actually going on in the streets.

You could see the body->> Yeah.>> Covered with sheets. With the first one I saw, it was really upsetting because the body, it was obviously pregnant woman and you could see the baby.>> Alongside the makeshift vigils, the Promenade des Anglais has been reopened by police. A city trying to get back to normal, a country determined not to be beaten.
