As the makeshift memorial on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice continued to grow Monday, piled high with flowers and other tributes to the victims of the last week's truck attack, a different kind pile was growing at the site where the attacker was shot by police. One man stopped to pour out the contents of a cup on the small mound of garbage. "Coward," reads the message in French scrawled on the asphalt next to the pile.

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel killed 84 people and wounded over 200 others when he plowed a white refrigerator truck down the packed Nice beachfront on Thursday night.
