Priest Killed In France Church

Two attackers storm a church at Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, France and slit the throat of a priest. One other person is wounded before the assailants are shot dead by police.

French interior minister Pierre-Henry Brandet said that "With regards to the profile of the individuals, of the assailants, for the moment i don't have information to communicate. The only information we have, and you know it as well, is that the anti terrorist unit has taken this on."

The Vatican has condemned the attack as a 'barbarous killing'. It's the latest in a string of deadly assults in Europe.
