Berkeley Student Killed in Terror Attack in Nice

The University of California, Berkeley, on Sunday reported that one of its students, Nicolas Leslie (at right), 20, has been identified among the 84 people killed in the terrorist attack in Nice on Thursday.

Berkeley earlier reported that three of its students were injured during Thursday's terrorist attack in Nice, and that Leslie was missing. He was a junior in the College of Natural Resources. Leslie was one of 85 students attending a Berkeley study abroad program on entrepreneurship and innovation in Europe connected with the European Innovation Academy.

The three injured students are also participants in the program. The university said Friday that two of the students have broken legs. The third student has a broken foot.

Eighty-four people were killed, and 202 wounded, in Nice after a terrorist drove a truck through a crowd during a Bastille Day fireworks display.

Berkeley's study abroad program has been temporarily suspended for a three-day national mourning period in France, but will continue through its scheduled end date of July 24. Seven students have accepted the university's offer to return to the U.S. early.

Earlier this month another UC Berkeley student, Tarishi Jain, was killed in a terrorist attack at a café in Bangladesh. Jain was doing an internship with Berkeley’s Subir and Malini Chowdhury Center for Bangladesh Studies.

In a statement Sunday, Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said, “This is tragic, devastating news. All of us in the UC Berkeley family -- both here on campus, and around the world -- are heartbroken to learn that another promising young student has been lost to senseless violence. I join Nick’s parents, friends and the entire campus community in condemning this horrific attack, and in mourning the loss of one of our own.”

Other Students Missing or Injured

MacEwan University, in Alberta, Canada, also announced that one of its students is missing in Nice.

The missing student, Mykhaylo (Misha) Bazelevskyy, is a supply chain management major with Ukrainian citizenship and Canadian permanent residency. He is part of a group of five MacEwan students and a faculty member participating in a three-week program in entrepreneurship, also at the European Innovation Academy.

The Singapore University of Technology and Design also announced that one of its students was injured in the Nice attack.
