Live: ‘Woman & man beheaded’ as 3 die in stabbing inside Nice church
A WOMAN and a man have been beheaded in a suspected terror attack inside a church in France, cops and officials said.
Three people were killed in the bloody rampage which saw the knifeman storm the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice, south of France.
Two victims - a man and a woman - were reportedly killed and butchered inside the church, including the basilica's caretaker.
Actu17 cites unnamed sources that two of the victims were beheaded in the attack.
The third victim - a woman - reportedly managed to escape and took refuge in a nearby bar where she succumbed to her injuries, reports BFMTV.
Armed cops then stormed Notre-Dame - the largest Roman Catholic church in Nice - and shot the suspected terrorist, wounding him.
Nice mayor Christian Estrosi said the attacker kept shouting "Allahu Akbar" even after he had been shot and as he was given medical care.
He said: "Enough is enough. The suspected knife attacker was shot by police while being detained, he is on his way to hospital, he is alive."
