UC Berkeley Student Confirmed Among Dead in Nice

Nicolas Leslie, 20, was confirmed among the dead by the University on Sunday.

— -- The University of California at Berkeley has confirmed the death of one of its students, Nicolas Leslie, in the attacks in Nice, France on Thursday.

Leslie, 20, of Del Mar, California, was one of 85 students from the university who were taking part in a study abroad program focused on entrepreneurship in the town on the French Riviera, U.C. Berkeley said in a statement.

"All of us in the UC Berkeley family, both here on campus, and around the world, are heartbroken to learn that another promising young student has been lost to senseless violence," UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said in a statement. "I join Nick's parents, friends and the entire campus community in condemning this horrific attack, and in mourning the loss of one of our own."

At least 84 people were killed in the attacks, which, according to French officials, may have been inspired by ISIS.

On Saturday, ISIS claimed in a statement that it was responsible for the attacks perpetrated by 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a French-Tunisian citizen and resident of Nice. The rampage ended when Bouhlel was killed by police.
