|The church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray
This morning, we have reports that an octogenarian priest was murdered inside a church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Normandy. Two attackers wielding knives took five hostages, including the priest. The attackers have been killed by the police.
Some reports state that the priest was beheaded; other reports state that the priest's throat was cut.

The sons of Allah doing what the sons of Allah do? Probably. The story is still developing.
UPDATE - PASTORIUS CUTTING IN:
Headlines and stories at Drudge provide some clarification:
Elderly priest, 86, is 'beheaded' by two ISIS knifemen shouting 'Daesh' after they took nuns and worshippers hostage at French church: Police shoot both attackers dead then search for bombs
Priest had throat cut while another hostage is fighting for life after knifemen burst into Normandy church at 9am
Reports that one of the attackers shouted 'Daesh' before launching the attach at Gambetta Church near Rouen
Vatican has condemned the 'barbaric' killing of the 86-year-old priest and an anti-terror investigation is underway
French President Francois Hollande said the men both 'claimed to be from' ISIS as they carried out the attackAN ANONYMOUS COMMENTER SAYS:
Quote===>"Reports that one of the attackers shouted 'Daesh' before launching the attack at Gambetta Church near Rouen".<===
one of the attackers shouted 'Daesh'???
We were told that Western powers-that-be preferred the derogatory term 'Daesh' as it removed any clear indication of Islam being related to terror and the group otherwise known as IS/ISIS/ISIL. 'Daesh' allegedly is a term IS/ISIL/ISIS hates because it is an acronym for an Arabic phrase
ad-Dawlah al-Islamiyah al-Iraq al-Sham which means Islamic State of Iraq & Levant and is very similar to the derogatory word 'daes' which means someone who sews discord.
Here in the latest horror reported from Normandy, France we read that the terrorists themselves shouted "Daesh" prior to launching this attack?
Anyone else find this peculiar?
