Nice attack: how vulnerable are we to ‘low-tech terror’

Briskey, M.ORCID: 0000-0002-3415-517X (2016) Nice attack: how vulnerable are we to ‘low-tech terror’. The Conversation, 15 July 2016 .


France has again been the scene of a lethal terrorist attack. At least one attacker drove through and then opened fire on crowds of French and foreign citizens enjoying Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, killing at least 80 people and injuring scores more.

Though there is as yet little solid information on who conducted this attack and whether any particular terrorist group can claim responsibility, it has shown what dreadful impact can be caused by the use of an innocuous and familiar part of modern life – a motor vehicle.
