WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has ordered flags at U.S. government facilities, including embassies and consulates abroad, to be flown at half-staff for the next four days in memory of the victims of the truck attack in Nice, France.

In a presidential proclamation issued by the White House on Friday, Obama ordered the flags to be lowered until sunset on Tuesday.

Obama issued a statement condemning the attack, which killed at least 84 people and wounded more than 200 others, late Thursday and is expected to speak about it at a reception for foreign diplomats at the White House later on Friday.

Obama also has called French President Francois Hollande to offer him condolences on behalf of the American people.
