Yet another terror attack in Nice, France as one woman is dead after being beheaded and another two was murdered by a man who shouted “"Allahu Akbar".
"Mayor Christian Estrosi said on Twitter the knife attack had happened in or near the city’s Notre Dame church and that police had detained the attacker.
Police said three people were confirmed to have died in the attack and several were injured.
A police source said a woman was decapitated. French politician Marine Le Pen also spoke of a decapitation having occurred in the attack."
Mayor Estrosi tweeted "I am on site with the @PoliceNat06 and the @pmdenice who arrested the perpetrator of the attack. I confirm that everything suggests a terrorist attack in the Basilica of Notre-Dame #Nice06."
The attack occurred nearly two weeks after a French middle school teacher was beheaded for teaching a lesson on free expression where he showed the class cartoons from Charlie Hebdo of Mohammed.
Nice was the target of one of France's deadliest attacks in recent years, when a 31-year-old Tunisian drove a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on 14 July 2016, killing 86 people.
