UC Berkeley Student Killed In France Terror Attack

NICE, France (KPIX 5) -- A UC Berkeley student was killed in last week's deadly terror attack in Nice, France, the FBI said Sunday.

The agency confirmed that student Nicolas Leslie, who had been missing since the attack, was among the victims of the attack.

20-year old Leslie was one of 85 Cal students enrolled in a study abroad program in Nice.  Authorities had been searching for him since Thursday's attack.

The FBI notified the University of Leslie's death Sunday.

Leslie was majoring in environmental sciences, and was set to begin studying at the Haas School of Business in the fall.

Three other UC Berkeley students were injured in the attack.

UC Berkeley will hold a vigil to honor Leslie Monday, beginning at 4:30 pm in Sproul Plaza.
