3 killed, 1 of them beheaded inside church in Nice, France

Paris, Oct 29 (IANS): At least three people have been killed and several others wounded after a knife attack inside a cathedral in Nice, France. One of the victims is believed to be beheaded.

The attack took place at 9am on Thursday morning inside the Notre-Dame basilica in the city centre. There were unconfirmed reports in the French media that at least one of the victims had been beheaded.

The French police described the scene as a "vision of horror".

Christian Estrosi, the Mayor of Nice, said the attacker had repeated "Allahu Akbar" several times while he was being arrested and handcuffed by police.

Estrosi said a woman victim had been decapitated but he had no details of how the two others were killed.

"We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge. Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory", the Mayor added.

The incident comes two weeks after the horrific killing of 47-year-old teacher, Samuel Paty, by a refugee Islamist terrorist after cartoons of Prophet Mohammed were shown by Paty to his students in a class on freedom of speech.

"Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic," Estrosi added.

This is not the first time Nice has come under attack. In 2016, a Tunisian named Mohammed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel drove a 19 tonne cargo truck into the crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day. Eighty-six people were killed and more than 400 injured. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack

    France is having left leaning democrat government. These use religion against religion as race against race happening in US to eliminate religions, finally bring total ruthless Godless communist control of EU, US including communist Chinese control of Asia. Same fear tactics they are using with their weapon grade virus and brainwashing to take their evil vaccine.

    This is the impact of separating state from Church and leaning too much towards secularism, liberalism, and multicultural society. Sometimes I am doubting whether this is the same Europe that fought two world wars. If so, then why they are not able to demonstrate that same courage now rather than showing candlelight solidarity and using hashtags as usual. What is the use of having most powerful and technologically advance military power if they can’t even flush out these brains washed radicals? .It’s not like that these hardliners are fearless -they are just enjoying the constitutional weakness of these European countries .Why these hardliners are not challenging China & Israel .So it’s a prime time for European to wake up from their slumber and get some good lessons from China & Israel in tackling the problem from it’s root

    You have a point. People should be conservative towards their culture and traditions. Europe was like that till the 90s. Afterwards, there was rapid neo liberalisation which is a subtle form of communism. They attack Christianity and defend islam.

    The media there like the bbc, guardian, telegraph etc have become so leftist that any opposition to islam is termed as Islamophobia or racism. They immediately label them as nazis. Europeans are afraid to be called nazis, so they bow down.

    Loss of innocent lives are totally condemnable. But it is a deliberate attempt to incite violence . It is very easy for the enemies of peace how to trigger violence. Provoke particular religion by targeting thier prophets. Even president Macron supported rightwing groups

    If you are a refugee or acquired citizenship of a new country other than your native country then mend your ways and live as per the tradition, culture, rules and laws of that country. Don't try to impose your own religious/personal laws in your new country. If you are not happy in your new country nobody is stopping you from leaving that country. Your rights are protected as per the law of the land. Behave and live peacefully or else Scram.

    EU did great damage to themselves, ulmost no point of return. they keep on lecturing secularism to others (even supported CAA protest), welcomed immigrants with open arm. now paying price. u cant say who is wrong who right ..its cultural clash. its very difficult to bring others to main stream and its foolishness since these people came from different part of the world with their own cultural identity, belief systems.. EU should have adopted ME model. no permanent visa..only temporary visas renewal in 2 years. if any caught not following law of land will thrown out. Germany France forced other countries also to follow their model..now every one in deep trouble..

    So called multi culturalism has failed in Europe. Not just France. It's Belgium, Sweden, Germany and many more countries. High time they stand for their native values and not compromise with a primitive idealogy.

    France , Germany UK and most of the Europe is paying the price for flirting with multicultural concept. Sadly they never learn.
    What they totally fail to understand is that there is a family , a community and a society behind each of these attackers. They are adored as martyrs, they are the role models of every child, and that is the incentive for more people to go in to that kind of aggression. The world community is blissfully unaware of the cancer that is spreading.

    Macron has realized it but its a bit late. The more you accept such people in your country, the more is the problem .They cannot coexist. Why do these people migrate to Christian countries if what they followed was class.
