>> As the first year anniversary of the horrific attack on Nice approaches, the French city is still grappling with the 86 victims who lost their lives as a truck driver rammed people celebrating Bastille Day. Ali Charrihi was one of those enjoying festivities with his family, but their night out came to a sharp end when his mother Fatima was struck down.

She was one of the first to die on the Promenade des Anglais.>> Our family is still in pain, still in limbo since July 14th. We're slowly trying to climb back up. We're drawing strength from our children, from the struggle for life that we're having right now against radicalization and the rest of these phenomena which pollute our lives.

>> The attack was carried out by Tunisian born Frenchman Mohamed Bouhlel, and claimed by Islamic State. This Muslim family, originally from Morocco, say they experienced anti-Islamic sentiment as horror descended on their city.>> On the first night there was a woman who came while my mother was still on the ground with all the blood, the ambulances and all of it.

She stopped and said, band of terrorists, well done you, it's your turn. Then while my sister and I were trying to mourn together, it was the first time I went to the site, there was this man who said we no longer want this here, we no longer want you here.

And ten minutes later a man in front of a cafe said to us, that's well and good, you're going round in the pack. And when we said leave us alone, we've just lost our mother, he said all the better, that makes one less of you.>> Determined to prevent extremism, the Charrihi siblings have founded an association, reaching out to people vulnerable to radicalization.

The family are now pinning their hopes on new president Emmanuel Macron to find solutions to extremism.
