Gunfire at scene of church attack in France

Video filmed at the scene also showed an injured person being carried away on a stretcher.

A knife-wielding attacker shouting "Allahu Akbar" beheaded a woman and killed two other people in a suspected terrorist act, authorities said.

Nice's mayor, Christian Estrosi, who described the attack in his city as terrorism, said on Twitter it had happened in or near Notre Dame church and was similar to the beheading of French teacher Samuel Paty earlier this month in Paris.
