Wounds re-opened, unity eludes attack-weary France

France concluded three days of national mourning for over 80 people mowed down by a truck driver as they celebrated Bastille Day in the Riviera city of Nice. But as official ceremonies came to a close, emotions remain high, with politicians scrambling for answers and the nation in distress over the third major attack on French soil in less than two years.

This government's answer has been to add 9,000 security jobs over Hollande's term, and the success of a relatively safe Euro tournament had officials momentarily celebrating. With that confidence fading fast, leaders seem eager to point fingers -- and with presidential elections looming in 2017, France could be settling in for months of divisive rhetoric.
