A five-day jazz festival in Nice has been cancelled following the killing of at least 84 people in the city by a truck driver, organisers said.

The festival, which had lined up acts such as Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour and British trip hop act Massive Attack, was scheduled to run from July 16 until 20.

"Cancellation of the Nice Jazz Festival after the terrible attack which hit Nice on July 14," the festival website said without giving further details.
