This sure looks like a terrorist attack to me, but there aren't enough details yet to say anything for sure. No indications of firearms or explosives, just a large truck and a crowd.
My sympathies, again, to the people of France who have suffered another horrific attack.
UPDATE: Lots of reports now that the truck had firearms and grenades.
UPDATE: Attacker identified. You can probably guess his first name. As for how he got the firearms (!) and grenades (!!) in France (which has strict gun control like most of Europe, and was still in a state of emergency since the last terrorist attack there) despite a record as a "career criminal", well, the Saudis funded a mosque in Nice that opened just two weeks ago. Maybe there's a connection there.
