Terrorists held several people during Mass Tuesday morning in a church in a small town in Normandy, France. An 86-year-old priest had his throat slit was forced to kneel before his death. A second victim is fighting for life. The hostages included two nuns, two worshippers, and a priest. Police shot and killed both assailants. A nun who was witness to the killing said, “They recorded themselves. They did a sort of sermon around the altar, in Arabic.” ISIS is believed to be resonsible for the attack
