France is waking up to another terrorist attack on Thursday morning, as three people have been killed, and two people were decapitated, and several people are injured.

The Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi said that this was a terrorist attack which happened in the Basilica of Notre-Dame and a man was shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

Nice’s Mayor Christian Estrosi tweeted, “Everything suggests a terrorist attack.”

French far-right politician Marine Le Pen, told reporters at the French Parliament in Paris, that a “decapitation” had occurred in the attack.

The knifeman was shot by police and is now in custody.

Videos on social media shows the French National Police (CRS) closing off roads and victims being placed on stretchers.

A witness told Nice-Matin, “My colleagues were smoking downstairs. They hurried upstairs indicating that there was a madman outside.

“We heard several shots. Six or seven.

“About 20 of us took refuge in the office. It was very distressing. We saw the police and the CRS enter the church. We moved away from the windows.”

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin confirmed that there is a police operation under way and people are being told to stay away from the area.
