Terrorists decapitate priest in French church

Two armed men have beheaded a priest and critically injured a nun in France before being shot dead by police.

The two men - described as wearing Islamic dress - entered a church in Normandy and took the priest, two nuns and two parishioners hostage. They murdered the priest, critically injured one of the nuns and were then killed by officers. The other three hostages escaped unharmed.

The church is currently being searched for booby traps.
