An 84-year-old priest was killed in an attack during a hostage-taking situation at a church in northern France, near Rouen. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, carried out by two terrorists who were later killed by police.

Police have also officially confirmed the death of one victim, who was "killed with a blade."
