PARIS — Guns and grenades have been found inside the truck that rammed into a crowd at the beachfront southern French city of Nice on Thursday, killing at least 73 people, a member of parliament for the region told BMF TV.

Another government official said the driver of the truck also fired on the crowd before he was killed by police.

Advisers to Donald Trump have told Republican officials that he has chosen Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate, but has decided to delay the announcement in the wake of attacks in Nice.
