A woman has been decapitated in a suspected terror attack in Nice, French police say.

Three people have died and several others are injured after a knife attack reportedly took place near the Notre Dame church. 

The attack began around 9am, according to local reports, before police swarmed the area where they shot and arrested the attacker. 

The city’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, tweeted: ‘I am on site with the [police] who arrested the perpetrator of the attack.  ‘I confirm that everything suggests a terrorist attack in the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Nice.’

The assailant was arrested after the Thursday morning attack and taken to a nearby hospital after being injured during his arrest, a police official told AP. The suspect was believed to be acting alone, the official said.

PARIS (Reuters) – The man suspected of carrying out a fatal knife attack at a church in the southern French city of Nice kept shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) even after he had been arrested by police, Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi told reporters

The Mayor is tweeting regularly this morning. 

13 jours après #SamuelPaty, notre pays ne peut plus se contenter des lois de la paix pour anéantir l’islamo fascisme. #Nice06

13 days after Samuel Paty we need more than the laws of peacetime to eliminate islamo fascism. 

According to the Telegraph the man has been named as Brahim (short for Ibrahim perhaps, although it is a common name in that form in Albania) ) which coincidentally is the same first name as the father of one of teacher Samuel Paty’s pupils who made the initial complaint (putting it mildly)
