A nun who escaped the horror attack says Parish priest Jacques Hamel was made to get to knees before he was brutally murdered at the Normandy church
The ISIS terrorists who carried out the France church attack forced a parish priest to kneel before filming themselves slitting his throat, it has emerged.
Father Jacques Hamel, 84, was made to get to knees before he was brutally slayed at the church in Normandy this morning, says a nun who escaped the attack.
“They forced him to kneel and he tried to defend himself and that is how the drama started,” the devastated nun told RMC radio this afternoon.
Speaking to BFM TV, she added that the terrorists ‘recorded themselves’ carrying out the killing and did ‘a sort of sermon around the altar in Arabic’.
