Australians Amongst Those Injured In Nice Terror Attack
Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has confirmed that three Australians have been injured in Friday morning's terror attack on Nice.
"They have suffered minor injuries, seeking to flee the scene, to get away from the scene," she told reporters in Perth on Friday
The terror attack took place during the cities Bastille Day celebrations when a man drove a truck straight through the mass crowd.
It is believed that one of the Australians is female but currently no other details are available about the other two.
Meanwhile Melbourne parents Danae and Sasha Goldsmith have told of the chilling moment they heard gunshots and pulled their children to the ground during the Bastille Day attack in Nice.
The couple were in their apartment with their two daughters, aged five and seven, when terror struck.
Mrs Goldsmith told Channel Nine of the terror.
“We got them down… and told them it was fireworks. We said sometimes people put fireworks up in the crowd,” Mrs Goldsmith said.
“So we just put them to bed, they haven’t seen any of this which is good.”
