French President Francois Hollande

French President Francois Hollande is attending a ceremony in remembrance of the 86 people killed when an Islamic extremist rammed his truck through crowds watching Bastille Day fireworks in Nice.

The event on Saturday was taking place on top of a hill overlooking the Promenade des Anglais, in the presence of families, people injured, religious representatives, France’s main political leaders and Nice local authorities.

The names of the 86 victims were being read out and 86 white roses placed on the centre of the ceremony square.

Cindy Pellegrini, who lost six family members in the July 14 attack, recalled France’s ideal of “liberty, equality, fraternity”.

“Our sadness is undefinable,” she said. “How to live with physical wounds? How to live with moral wounds?”
