-- As France is reeling from the truck attack in Nice that left over 80 people dead, tributes to the victims and expressions of solidarity have begun pouring in locally, as well as from all over the globe and social media.
Dozens of people have been placing flowers in Nice and messages of love and support on the ground near the site of the attack.
"France is strong," French Pesident François Holland said during a nationally televised address early this morning. "France will always be stronger than the fanatics who want to strike France today."
The mayor for the city of Paris, which experienced a series of attacks in November that left 130 dead, added that the Eiffel Tower would be lit in the tricolors of the French flag this evening in solidarity with Nice.

Other famous buildings and monuments in other parts of the world also lit up in blue, white and red overnight, including the Senate building in Mexico City and the Omni Hotel in Dallas.
Flowers in the colors of the French flag were left along with a note that said, "Vive la France" on a fence outside the French Embassy in Rome, and a candlelight vigil was held in Sydney, Australia.
On social media, the hashtag #PrayforNice trended number one worldwide overnight. Numerous celebrities and leaders also took to social media platforms to pen messages of grief and solidarity.
And in a situation where words aren't enough, many have also been sharing powerful cartoons and images created by artists in response to the attack.
