Bono Put His Hands Up Like Everyone Else

There's something a bit misleading about this article. It suggests that the police rushed to Bono's aid. That is simply not the case:

U2 frontman Bono was reportedly rescued by armed police while dining in a restaurant in Nice during last week's terror attacks in the French city.

Last Thursday night (July 14), a truck ploughed into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the southern city. The crash left 85 people dead and 202 others injured. The driver of the truck Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel was later shot dead by police and the incident is being treated as a terror attack.

The Mirror reports that Bono was on the terrace of La Petite Maison, a restaurant on the Nice seafront and near where the attack took place.

Bono was not given celebrity treatment, however. Once the police worked their way through the area, they had him put his hands on his head like everyone else before they let him go. There was a real fear in Nice on the night of the attack that there were others involved.
