    FRANCE - Two hostage takers kill priest in church of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-fr...-idUSKCN1060VA

    French police "neutralized" two men armed with blades who had taken several people hostage in a church in northern France on Tuesday, the police said.

    A police source said that one of the hostages had been killed with a blade in the attack which took place in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, south of Rouen. French media reported the attackers cut the throat of the priest.

    The hostages included a priest, two nuns and two worshippers according to BFM TV.


    The attack is the latest in a string of deadly assaults in Europe. In France, the Normandy attack comes 12 days after a 31-year-old Tunisian killed 84 people in the French Riviera city of Nice when he plowed his heavy goods truck into a crowd of revelers. Islamic State claimed the attack in Nice

    A priest and a faithful slaughtered in Seine-Maritime church.

    The priest, two sisters and two worshipers were held in the church. The hostage-takers were killed. They would have shouted "Daech" entering the church.

    Reportedly, the priest, Father Jacques Hamel aged 86 years and ordained as a priest in 1958, and a parishioner were slain. Aother parishioner and another policeman were also injured. The hostage-takers at their turn, were shot as they left the church armed with knives.

    The terrorism prosecutor is in charge of the case.

    Sid Ahmed Ghlam was already suspected of having wanted to take this church as a target.

    He is not involved in this attack, he is in prison. His plans failed, but they were the first clear oindicationthat churches are a goal of muslim terrorists.

    All churches.
