Church sexton split throat, attacker kept shouting Allahu Akbar

Yesterday October 29, the sexton of Nortre Dame church in Nice started his day as usual at 8:30 a.m. He was preparing for the first Mass of the day at 10:30 when a man walked in.

The criminal said nothing and split the throat of the churchwarden before he could scream for help. An elderly woman nearby was decapitated while another woman was badly wounded.

Though the third victim managed to run to a café near the church, she died due to serious injuries. People rushed to ask the staff to call the police. David, a staff at the bakery said that he even thought it was a joke at first. Only when a person insisted there was a crime there did he walk to the newly installed intercom at the corner of the street to connect with the police.

Less than a minute after David pressed the button on the intercom, the police arrived at the scene. After that, witnesses saw the knifeman coming out of the church when blood could be seen on his clothes.

In order to stop the criminal, police started their gunfire at around 8:58. The attacker, while trying to flee from the scene, kept shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) before he was shot down by the police. At 9:10 a.m, the criminal was detained by the local officials.

According to further reports, another Islamic radical was also shot dead in a separate incident when he threatened passersby with a handgun in Avignon in the south of France. This man also shouted Allahu Akbar before being killed by the police. The attacks were believed to relate to the recent killing of a French schoolteacher who showed his students the cartoons of Prophet Muhammad.

Shocking statement from ex-Malaysian PM on France attacks

While most countries deplore the cruel attack at the French church in relation to Islamic radicals, the former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad released a controversial statement.

Not only calling the French President Emmanuel Macron primitive in blaming Muslims for the murder of schoolteacher, Mahathir Mohammad even insisted Muslims had the right to “kill millions of French people.”

Former Malaysian Pm Mahathir Mohamad
The statement from Mahathir Mohamad is seen as an incitement to hatred and violence in France.

The ex-PM continued to condemn France for killing millions of people in the era of colonialism in which many victims belonged to Islamic communities.

Twitter has marked the tweet from this former Malaysian PM as ‘glorifying violence’ but the platform initially decided to make the post accessible for the public’s interest. The tweet was later removed because it violated the Twitter rules though.

Back to the France attacks at Notre Dame church, the identities of neither three victims nor the knifeman were announced.
