The world is reeling at the atrocity in France where more than 80 people, including children, were killed by a terrorist who drove a truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the city of Nice.
Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, the biggest-selling newspaper in Australia’s most-populous city, is publishing a powerful Saturday front page which highlights how the attack in the south of France fits in a recent campaign of atrocities by extremists around the world.
The Telegraphs’s editor tweeted the front page a short time ago:
While the atrocity in Nice is front-of-mind in western nations, it underscores how fanatics and ISIS-linked extremists have been carrying out attacks worldwide on a regular basis over recent weeks.
The US is still getting over the shock of the mass shooting in Orlando, while in early July a wave of suicide bombings struck across Saudi Arabia. Bombings in Pakistan, meanwhile, have caused increasing concern that ISIS may be gaining a foothold in that country, just as it is being routed in Iraq.
