To menn bevæpnet med kniver tok flere mennesker som gisler i en kirke i Normandie. De rakk å drepe ett av gislene før de ble skutt og drept av spesialstyrker.
Two men armed with knives took several people hostage in a church in a town in France’s northern Normandy region on Tuesday, a police source said.
The source said between four and six people were being held by the assailants in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.
Telegraph kunne så melde:
Elite police units rushed to the church in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du Rouvray after the men seized a number of people including a priest and two nuns.
De skjøt og drepte begge mennene. Telegraph skriver programmatisk at motivet for å ta gisler i en kirke er ukjent.
Guardian kan fortelle at ett av gislene ble drept før de ble befridd:
French media reported that five hostages were being held, and that a sixth escaped and raised the alarm. A priest, two nuns and two worshippers were reported to be among the hostages.
Firefighters told RTL that several people had been injured.
