Another terrorist attack in France linked to Islamic fundamentalism
Three people were killed in a knife attack at a church in the French city of Nice, earlier on Thursday.
Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said there had been a «terrorist attack at the heart of the Notre-Dame basilica».
One elderly victim who had come to pray was «virtually beheaded». One suspect was shot and detained shortly afterwards.
The French city’s mayor spoke of «Islamo-fascism», as he said, adding that the suspect had «repeated chanted ‘Allahu Akbar’.»
President Emmanuel Macron is on his way to the scene, while France’s national anti-terror prosecutors have opened a murder inquiry.
