Nice death toll reaches 84; killer identified.
As many as 52 more people are in critical condition, and 25 of those are in intensive care, BuzzFeed News reports.
The attack occurred just after 11pm local time (7:48am AEST) on 14 July, when a lorry accelerated into crowds of thousands during a Bastille Day celebration in the southern city.
The driver, who has been named by the Paris prosecutor as 31-year-old French Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, was shot dead at the scene.
French police have been searching Bouhlel’s home.
“Investigations are currently under way to establish if the individual acted alone or if he had accomplices who might have fled,” interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brander said, according to ABC News.
Bouhlel's ex-wife has been arrested and held in custody, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said.
