Adding that the editorial team wanted to pay tribute to the victims, Mr Royant explained that the magazine's journalists had found that the attacker had carried out reconnaissance trips to Nice's Promenade des Anglais for more than a year.

The images in question were taken from video surveillance cameras along the Promenade des Anglais, where a Tunisian jihadist plowed his truck into the crowd who had been watching the annual July 14th fireworks show.

The ceremony started with the interpretation by a choir of children of Nissa la Bella, the hymn of the city, before a minute of silence.

PARIS (AP) - A French court ruled Thursday against withdrawing the picture magazine Paris Match from newsstands for publishing gruesome photos of the attack a year ago that killed 86 people in Nice - but forbid two pictures of it from being published again, including on the internet.

Macron has vowed to end the state of emergency by November 1 this year.

A French court on Thursday said Paris Match's publication of graphic pictures of the Bastille day attack in Nice was "obscene" and barred it from putting them on its website but did not heed calls to remove the magazine from news stands.

House Passes National Defense Authorization Act Of 2018
The 2018 NDAA represents a almost $50 billion increase over the former President's budget proposal . Smith is the top ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.

But the magazine's editor Olivier Royant justified the publication in a statement.

The magazine said the shots used were taken at a distance and do not identify the victims or impair their dignity.

Eric Morain, a lawyer for several victims' associations said the images were "an insult to the victims' dignity".

The Mayor of Nice also denounced Paris Match's decision and said he had written to France's justice minister.

Now, Bastille Day - a national holiday in France - has become a sombre event in the Riviera city as its residents remember the victims of the attack.

The self-proclaimed "Islamic State" group claimed responsibility for the atrocity.
