Mourning in Nice
Mourning in Nice

Nice Matin, July 13, 2017

This year's Bastille Day celebrations will have special meaning in Nice, as the southern French city commemorates the first anniversary of the July 14, 2016 attack when a truck driven by a terrorist plowed into a dense crowd gathered to watch the National Day's fireworks.

The city's largest local daily, Nice Matin ("Morning Nice"), marks the anniversary of the attack that killed 86 people and wounded more than 450 others with a front page photo of a young woman leaning out of a window, head high, waving a French flag. The headline reads "Aux Drapeaux!" ("To flags!"), a reference to the French national anthem's chorus "Aux armes, citoyens' ("To arms, citizens!").
