Shock and horror -- that's what people around the world are saying when confronted with images like these... the panic, after a large truck drove fast and deliberately at a crowd in Nice, Thursday evening. Officials say over 80 people have died. And travelers at Boston's Logan International Airport say, they're worried about traveling to France. Eunice Chapon and her family are moving there. (SOUNDBITE) (English) EUNICE CHAPON, MOVING TO FRANCE, SAYING: "One of the big concerns that we had was is it safe? It's just horrible to see the terrible things that people want to do." But she says, she is going ahead with the move to Paris. (SOUNDBITE) (English) EUNICE CHAPON, MOVING TO FRANCE, SAYING: "I think of Nice as more old France. Kind of like the Paris of old where people are so gracious and so classy and wonderful. It just saddens me to see when things like this happen." The U.S. State Department says two U.S. citizens are among the dead. And travelers are just left shaking their heads in disbelief. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ERIC BENOIR, TRAVELER, SAYING: "Very sad actually and very surprised yeah. I mean, it's a shock for me too just like what happened a few months ago." The attack comes eight months after the Islamist militant shootings and suicide bombings in Paris that killed 130 people. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RUNE POULSEN, DANISH TRAVELER, SAYING: "Right now, it seems like the world has gone a bit crazy and I don't like it at all. It's just sad." An investigation is underway for what French President Francois Hollande is calling a terrorist attack, although no group has yet to claim responsibility.
