Woman beheaded, two others killed in knife attack by Islamist terrorist in Nice, France

A knife-wielding Islamist terrorist went on a killing spree in the French city of Nice today when he beheaded a woman and killed two others while injuring several people. The attacker is believed to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” while indulging in the barbaric act. According to reports, one of the three persons killed is believed to be the church-warden.

Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi who was at the site of the attack along with police officials has commended the police for acting swiftly and arresting the terrorist. Mincing no words he declared the attack to be an act of terrorism.

Issuing a statement in this regard, the Mayor condemned Islamofascism which he said had attacked the innocent parishioners, and sent out condolences to the family members of the victims of this barbaric act. As per his statement, the terrorist act took place either in or near the iconic Notre Dame de Nice church and he deemed it an attack on the entire Christian world. Estrosi said “Enough is enough. It’s time now for France to exonerate itself from the laws of peace in order to definitively wipe out Islamo-fascism from our territory.”

According to reports, the terrorist has been shot by the police when they attempted to detain him. He is alive and has been taken to the hospital.

France which opened its doors to Islamic immigrants not so long ago has been gripped by Islamic terrorism in recent times. Only recently a history teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded by an Islamist for showing Charlie Hebdo Mohammad cartoon during a lesson on free speech.

Following this France had retaliated against Islamic terrorism and stood in defiance against Islamic terrorism when it paid a tribute to slain Paty by projecting cartoons including the Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoon onto Montpellier and Toulouse government buildings.
