Terror in France: Two people beheaded by Muslim terrorist inside church in Nice

BREAKING: Two people have been beheaded and several others injured by a Muslim terrorist in a stabbing rampage inside a church in the southern French city of Nice.

The terror attack began around 9 am before police swarmed the area, where they shot and arrested the terrorist.

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said a police operation was underway in the city, while Nice Mayor said the Muslim terrorist behind the attack had been arrested.

The terror attack came within days of the murder of French school teacher Samuel Paty, who was beheaded in Paris this month by an 18-year-old Muslim terrorist from Pakistan after he used caricatures of mohammad in a class on freedom of expression.

That murder convulsed France, carrying echoes of the Muslim terror attack in 2015 on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo after it published cartoons of mohammad.
