Police officers and fire services arrive at the scene of a hostage-taking at a church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near the city of Rouen in northern France, on July 26, 2016Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray (France) (AFP) - The Islamic State group said Tuesday that two of its "soldiers" stormed a French church and slit a priest's throat, the latest attack in a country shaken to its core by repeated terror strikes. The hostage drama in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray comes less than two weeks after the truck massacre in the French Riviera city of Nice, which killed 84 people and was also claimed by IS. Sister Danielle, a nun who was in the church at the time, said elderly priest Jaques Hamel was wearing his white cloaks and was at the foot of the altar when "they forced him to get on his knees and not move".
