ISIS Terrorists Murder Priest And Injure Nun In Church Attack In Normandy
Seems like every week now there is some horrific tragedy taking place somewhere in the world.
The ISIS knifemen who stormed into a church in Normandy filmed themselves butchering an elderly priest after forcing him to kneel – before they performed a ‘sermon in Arabic’ at the altar, a terrified witness has revealed today.
The 84-year-old priest, named as Jacques Hamel, had his throat cut in a Normandy church this morning in an attack that also left a nun critically injured and both jihadis dead.
The two killers, who were both known to French authorities, were shot dead by police marksmen as they emerged from the building shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’. The building was later searched for bombs.
French president Francois Hollande, who visited the scene today, said the country is ‘at war’ with ISIS after the terror group claimed responsibility for the brutal attack.
One of the extremists who stormed into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen during mass was a French 19-year-old named Adel K., who was being monitored by electronic tag after twice attempting to join fanatics in Syria. Unbelievably, his bail terms allowed him to be unsupervised between 8.30am and 12.30pm – the attack happened between 9am and 11am.
Sadly, this sounds like fodder for Donald Trump and his bigotry.
R.I.P. to the priest who lost his life. Prayers up for the nun who was injured.
