Police in France arrested a man with a machete trying to attack people who had gathered at a vigil to remember the victims of the Nice attack.

Three days of national mourning were declared by French President Francois Hollande after 84 people were killed when a terrorist driving a truck plowed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day.

A man allegedly attempted to attack those who had gathered at one vigil to pay their respects, according to a Twitter post by Buzzfeed journalist Ryan Broderick. Photos of the scene were posted on social media.

He was patted down by police.

The crowd reportedly “screamed” at the man as police arrested him and put him in a police car.
