Watch the moment a gunman smashes a truck into a crowd of revellers celebrating Bastille Day in the French resort of Nice, killing at least 80 people.

President Francois Hollande has called it a "terrorist" attack on revellers enjoying a Bastille Day fireworks display.

The driver was shot dead after barrelling the truck two kilometres through the festive crowd on the palm-lined Promenade des Anglais, sending hundreds fleeing in terror and leaving the area strewn with bodies.

Authorities said they found identity papers belonging to a 31-year-old French-Tunisian citizen in the truck, as well as "guns" and "larger weapons".
