Two people have been killed and a third is in a life-threatening condition after a knife attack in the French city of Nice, according to local mayor Christian Estrosi.
“At this moment, we have, without any doubt, two dead inside the church, in a horrible way,” Estrosi said.
Video from the scene posted to social media showed emergency services responding to the incident.
Medics are “trying everything to save the life of a third victim who was able to flee,” Estrosi said.
He said the attacker was shot by police, but is alive.
