Prime minister Manuel Valls on Friday called the man who rammed his truck into a crowd in Nice a "terrorist" with probable links to radical Islam, as France plunged into mourning for the 84 people killed in the attack.
At least 10 children and teenagers were among the dead, mown down as Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel ploughed his lorry through a crowd of thousands watching fireworks for France's national day on Thursday night.
Anti-terrorism prosecutor Francois Molins said the Tunisian-born attacker was "completely unknown" to the intelligence services but that the assault was "exactly in line with" calls from jihadist groups to kill.
Valls said Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, 31, was "probably linked to radical Islam in one way or another", although interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve cautioned that it was too early to confirm a link.
As France was left reeling from its third major attack within 18 months, president Francois Hollande warned that the toll could rise further, with more than 50 people fighting for their lives.
Here is how newspapers in France, Britain and around the world reacted to the atrocity on Saturday morning:
