WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Thursday said he condemned a deadly attack in Nice and offered any assistance France needs to investigate.

"On behalf of the American people, I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France, which killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians," Obama said in a statement.

At least 74 people were killed and dozens injured when a truck slammed into a crowd in the French Riviera city during Bastille Day celebrations.
