BERKELEY (AP) — A vigil is planned Monday afternoon for a University of California, Berkeley who was killed in last week’s Bastille Day truck attack in the French city of Nice.

The university said the FBI informed school officials that the body of 20-year-old Nicolas Leslie of Del Mar in the San Diego area had been identified. Leslie was a junior at Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources.

The vigil is at 4:30 p.m. in Sproul plaza on the university campus and is open to the public.

Leslie was among three foreign students studying technology entrepreneurship at the European Innovation Academy who were among those missing after the attack.

The other program participants still unaccounted for are 22-year-old Canada-based Ukrainian national Misha Bazelevsky and 21-year-old Estonian Rickard Kruusberg, Annie Seneard, a communication officer at the Nice branch of the academy, told The Associated Press.
