The Herald reports:
A priest has been beheaded and a nun is “fighting for her life” after two knife-wielding Islamic State terrorists took worshippers hostage at a church in northern France.
The attackers were shot and killed after raiding a morning Mass at 9am Tuesday (7pm Tuesday NZT) in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen in Normandy.
A third suspect – pictured wearing a white T-shirt and blue tracksuit pants – has been arrested.
Father Jacques Hamel, 84, was slaughtered by the assailants.
A nun who was in the church during the attack said he was forced to the ground before his throat was slit.
The slaughter of innocents is almost becoming a daily occurrence.
