A truly amazing event when a Greek priest was killed outside his church in Lyon, France.
Saturday’s attack comes 24 hours after a terrorist stabbed scores of people outside a church in the southern French city of Nice, killing three and injuring many.
On October 16, a school teacher was beheaded in a terrorist attack.
Police say the reason for the new attack is still unclear, but stems from tensions over the publication of cartoons making fun of the Prophet Muhammad.
The priest is in hospital with a fatal injury to the stomach, reports AP.
The assailant was alone and fired a shotgun.
Police have blocked the area around the church and warned the public to stay away from it.
