A man wielding a knife at a church in the French city of Nice killed three people, beheading the head of a woman, and injured several others before being apprehended by police, officials said on Thursday. French anti-terror prosecutors have opened an inquiry into what the city’s Mayor Christian Estrosi called an “Islamo-fascist attack. 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. The mayor told journalists at the scene that the assailant, detained shortly afterwards by police, “kept repeating ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is Greater) even while under medication.”
