Nice’s bloodstained seafront reopens

Tourists and residents are again walking along Nice’s famed Mediterranean seafront where less than 48 hours earlier a truck attack left a scene of carnage.
    
Some passers-by took pictures Saturday while others paid silent tribute to the 84 people killed in Thursday’s attack – their blood still visible on the pavement.
    
Roses, candles, teddy bears and notes of grief and sympathy have been placed where the dead lay after they were mowed down by driver Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Tunisian who had lived in Nice for years.
    
The solemn silence was only punctured when plainclothes police officers tried to drive through the crowd, prompting angry shouts of "Shame!" amid criticism of police failure to prevent the bloodshed.
    
Most said they felt it was right to reopen the promenade so soon after the attack.
