The aftermath of the truck attack in Nice 2016 – When Islamophobia and Bereavement meet

On July 14, 2016, 31-year-old Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel ploughed a rented 19-tonne truck through crowds out celebrating France’s Bastille Day in Nice. In total 86 people died and 458 others were wounded. A film by Hossam Wahbeh, Truck Attack in Nice looks at the event through the eyes of three Muslim families who lost two young sons and a wife and mother. They re-tell their own versions of their ordeals on an evening that started with celebration and ended in violent tragedy, as they all struggle to come to terms with a loss that they simply cannot comprehend.
