FRANCE: A knife attack left three people dead near a Catholic church in Nice, the French police have said.

Nice’s mayor Christian Estrosi called the killings an act of terrorism by a recent Arab immigrant who yelled Allah O Akbar (God is the greatest, in Arabic) when the police shot and arrested him.
