Police in the French coastal city of Nice are responding to a knife attack in the vicinity of a church, which the local mayor has described as a “terrorist attack.”
Mayor Christian Estrosi said the attacker has been taken into custody.
In the information gathered, it was reported that two Catholic worshippers have been murdered by Islamic terrorists inside Notre Dame Church in Nice, France this morning.
Early reports suggest that a woman was beheaded by the Muslim terrorist.
“I am on the scene with the police who arrested the attacker. Everything points to a terrorist attack,”
Estrosi said on Twitter Thursday morning.
France’s Interior Minister Grald Darmanin said he was chairing a crisis meeting at the ministry in response to the attack.
There is no official information yet on the condition of victims.
