The Friday Edition
Nice, France: Victim friend
A Muslim leader in Nice pays tribute to her friend, the mother of seven children — and one of the first to be mowed down after the fireworks ended and the attack began.
Nice, France: Politician witness
A unified response to a shattering experience. A member of the French government who witnessed last night's carnage in Nice urges his fellow citizens not to let the attack further divide the country.

The military says it's taken control, the government declares its defiance — and we'll try to figure out just who is in charge in Turkey, after what appears to be a coup.
Nice, France: Witness couple
A Swedish couple visiting France survive last night's mayhem in Nice and tell us what they witnessed.
Nice, France: Senator security
The man accused of the truck attack in Nice could have acted as a so-called "lone wolf" — which, according to one French Senator, makes these attacks impossible to prevent.
