Sinn Fein MLA Martin McGuinness has expressed his condolences following last night's deadly attack in Nice.

Mr McGuinness said;

"Last night's attack in Nice has shocked the world.

"The fact that so many people died while out enjoying celebrations for a national holiday makes it all the more tragic.

"I am conscious of the fact that people from so many countries , including some of our own citizens and those from my own city were caught up in this horrific attack. 

"The scale of the loss of life is heartbreaking and my thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of all those killed and injured.

"We must all stand together in the face of hate and intolerance and show solidarity with the people of France at this time."
