Three dead as woman beheaded in France, gunman killed in second incident

A knife-wielding attacker shouting “Allahu Akbar” beheaded a lady and killed two different individuals in a suspected terrorist act at a church within the French city of Nice on Thursday, whereas a person waving a gun was shot lifeless by police in a separate incident.
Inside hours of the Good assault, police killed a person who had threatened passersby with a handgun in Montfavet, close to the southern French metropolis of Avignon. He was additionally shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Best), in line with radio station Europe 1.
In Saudi Arabia, in the meantime, state tv reported {that a} Saudi man had been arrested within the Purple Sea metropolis of Jeddah after attacking and injuring a guard on the French consulate there. The French Embassy mentioned he was in hospital after a knife assault and his life was not at risk.
Good’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, mentioned the assault in his metropolis had occurred in or close to Notre Dame church and was much like the beheading earlier this month close to Paris of instructor Samuel Paty, who had used cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in a civics class.
