ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Catholics gathered at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Sunday evening (July 17) to pray for the victims killed and injured during the Bastille Day truck attack in the Riviera city. The 31-year-old Tunisian killer, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, drove at the crowd on Thursday night (July 14), zig-zagging along the seafront Promenade des Anglais for two kilometers as a fireworks display marking the French national day ended, until police eventually shot him dead. Eighty-five people died in the attack, and 18 others including a child are in critical condition. The special mass was attended by people from across the world. "We just got here on vacation, from the U.S. We are really impressed with how everybody is getting together from France to pray for the people of Nice as well as the people from the United States,'' said Tom, an American tourist. Thursday night's attack in Nice plunged France into new grief and fear just eight months after gunmen killed 130 people in Paris. Those attacks, and one in Brussels four months ago, have shocked Western Europe, already anxious over security challenges from mass immigration, open borders and pockets of Islamist radicalism.
