Two Americans are among the dead from France's Bastille Day attack.

State Department spokesman John Kirby says the pair was among those killed in Nice on Thursday when a large truck plowed through a crowd gathered for fireworks. More than 80 died in all.

Kirby didn't identify the individuals by name, citing privacy concerns.

He says the U.S. is providing assistance to those affected by the attack, while the embassy tries to account for all Americans in the Mediterranean city.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
