French President Francois Hollande announced that he would extend his country’s state of emergency by an additional three months after the deadly attack in Nice Thursday when a truck plowed into a crowd of people, killing at least 84.
Hollande condemned the attack as a "monstrosity," and said there could be no doubt that it was an act of terror. "France as a whole is under the threat of Islamic terrorism, we have to demonstrate absolute vigilance and show determination that is unfailing," French President said.
According to Hollande, France is going to strengthen its military efforts against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. "Nothing will lead us to give in, to give up our fight against terrorism. We will continue to reinforce our actions in Syria and Iraq. We will continue to strike those who are attacking us on our own soil," Hollande stressed.
