Two people killed and several others wounded in ‘terrorist’ knife attack at a church in Nice France
The French city’s mayor said it looked like it was a terrorist incident.
The suspect has been arrested, Christian Estrosi added.
French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said a police operation was under way in the city in southern France.
The attack comes while France is still reeling from the beheading earlier this month of French middle school teacher Samuel Paty by a man of Chechen origin.
It was not immediately clear what the motive was for the Nice attack, or if there was any connection to the cartoons, which Muslims consider to be blasphemous.
