Death toll from Nice lorry attack rises after man dies in hospital

A man who was injured in the Bastille Day lorry attack in Nice has died in hospital, taking the death toll to 85.

He was named as Pierre Hattermann, 56, by Christian Estrosi, president of the region where the French Riviera city is located.

The local Nice Matin daily newspaper said Mr Hattermann's wife, Francoise, and 13-year-old son, Elouan, were also killed when a truck driven by Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, 31, barrelled down the resort's Promenade des Anglais as tens of thousands of people gathered for the July 14 French national day celebration.

The attack was claimed by the so-called 'Islamic State' group.

Mr Hattermann, a psychologist, died at the Pasteur Hospital yesterday, the paper reported.

He lived in the Savoie region of eastern France and had been on holiday in NIce with his family.
