Thursday night, former Cairo banker, Nadar El Shafei managed to film the final moments of the Nice, France terrorist attack where police officers were shooting at the terrorist, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel.
Bouhlel mounted onto the pavement and drove a mile down the road, running over hundreds of people, killing 84.
Nadar El Shafei managed to capture on video the final moments when police caught up to the vehicle and started shooting and killing Bouhlel so that he wouldn’t cause any more harm.
El Shafei told BBC:
“We thought at the beginning it was just an accident,” he said, “but then I saw him pulling out his gun and trying to shoot a group of policemen who were coming running towards him.
“I saw him for about one minute – face to-face – but he was not looking at me. He was looking out of the window, appearing very nervous.
“I kept yelling at him, waving with my hand, trying to tell him that there were a lot of dead people underneath his truck. But he did not give any attention to anyone outside the truck.
“Police killed him straight away – they didn’t wait to negotiate – they just opened fire on him.”
El Shafei said that he and others ran towards the beach because of fears that Bouhlel had a bomb and could detonate it.
