The two Islamic State soldiers who murdered a French Priest used nuns as as human shields against anti-terrorism police. Why are you not outraged?
A nun, identified as Sister Danielle, described how Father Hamel was forced to kneel on the floor before his throat was slit during the hour-long hostage-taking incident which began as the two knifemen burst into the parish church by a back door during morning mass.
She said: "They forced him to his knees. He wanted to defend himself. And that's when the tragedy happened.
"They recorded themselves. They did a sort of sermon around the altar, in Arabic. It's a horror," she told BFM television.
Sister Danielle went on to describe the minister as a "great priest".
The brutal killing was the extremist group's first attack against a church in the West.
To attack a church, to kill a priest, is to profane the republic," French President Francois Hollande told the nation after speaking with Pope Francis, who condemned the killing in the strongest terms.
