Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Monday that the truck attack that killed 84 in the Riviera city of Nice was "of a premeditated nature."

Investigations have shown that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel staked out the Promenade des Anglais on several occasions, taking selfies there throughout the day of the attack, and had reserved the rented truck on July 4.
