French nationals attended vigils in Tokyo and Sydney on Friday to pay their respects after at least 84 people were killed when an attacker plowed a heavy truck into crowds marking Bastille day in Nice.

In Tokyo, a group of French nationals gathered at the residency of France's ambassador to Japan. "I came here because when we live far away it is very difficult and we feel even further," said Aude Luce, a French national living in Tokyo.

In Sydney, members of the local French community, some draped in their country's flag, lit candles and held a minute of silence for the victims of what President Francois Hollande has called a terrorist act.
