by BBC  |  published on July 26, 2016

A priest has been killed in an attack by two armed men at his church near Rouen in northern France, police and French media have said.

The armed men entered the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray during Mass, taking the priest, two nuns and several churchgoers hostage, reports said.

French TV said shots had been heard after police arrived at the scene. Both hostage-takers are now dead.

The area has been cordoned off and police have told people to stay away.

At least one person is receiving medical treatment for injuries.

A woman who works in a local beauty parlour, Eulalie Garcia, said she had known the 92-year-old priest since her childhood.

    AHHH, these GREAT refugees and the religion of peace, the only peaceful religion that will cut your head off, blow U up, or blow your brains out, burn you alive, drown you, and stone you to death! And we have all this lovely sh$t coming here, but they will be vetted, and we’ll ONLY take the good ones, we have nothing to worry about at all! We know this to be true, because Obama said we had nothing to fear, but fear itself, and we all know this B-TARD never lies!!

    And not a peep about the dead murderers? Is there a doubt about who is responsible for this old priest’s death? Not for me even if the leaders of France act like the leaders of Germany. Fools and their constituents should be firing them and deporting their headaches immediately back to the hell holes where they crawled out of!

    PS: Some advice to the EU legal populations, send your leaders who arranged for this mess back to the hell holes with them!

      These leaders are being paid big money to do this to their own country and people, and probably by the UN!!
