Orthodox Priest Shot And Wounded At French Church by Canih28: 9:29pm On Oct 31, 2020
An Orthodox priest has been wounded in a shooting in the French city of Lyon, according to police.

Police sources told reporters that the suspect had fled the scene.

The French interior ministry said security and emergency personnel were on the scene and urged people to avoid the area.

The incident came days after three people were killed in a knife attack at a church in the southern French city of Nice .

French President Emmanuel Macron called the killings an "Islamist terrorist attack" and deployed thousands of extra soldiers to protect public sites, including places of worship.

The shooting in Lyon happened at about 16:00 local time (15:00 GMT) when the priest was closing his church, media reports say.

A police source told AFP news agency that the attacker was armed with a sawn-off shotgun.
The BBC has not immediately been able to verify this information.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said he would set up an emergency response team in co-ordination with Mr Macron.

The priest is reported to be in a serious condition, with Reuters news agency reporting that he is being treated on site for "life-threatening injuries".

The priest's identity has not been made public, but reports say he has Greek nationality.

France una see una life so. These Islam folks doesn't deserve liberalism.This is the consequence of allowing people who do not attach value to life but brainwashed with vexation, abhorrence, vendetta, extremism and terrorism in the name of religion.

Give them a little opportunity, they’ll go and gather all their generations and wrestle your property from you.

Helping them is tantamount to pouring water into a basket.
