Tri-State Students Still Touring France


The list of detainees being questioned about the Nice terror attacks has risen to seven.

Saturday, officials said five people were being questioned. Two more were arrested on Sunday.

84 people were killed and more than 200 wounded when a Tunisian national drove a large truck into a crowd of people.

A group of about 100 Tri-State high school students are in France right now.

We spoke with Isabelle Word, a senior at Reitz High School, about the day of the attack and what has happened since.

“I actually found out from my mom and I was scared because I didn’t know if anything else would happen. It was the day before the national holiday and we were in Paris on the national holiday. All of the flags have been half staff… and security in public places has been a lot tighter, but other than that, it’s pretty normal,” says Word.

Word says they’re in Marseille right now. That’s on the southern coast of France about two hours from Nice.

She says they’re scheduled to be back in the states on July 25.
