    Is the media getting better at covering these sort of events or is the world just becoming more mucked up by the day
    Exactly this.

    Hard to imagine this is anything other than terrorism... It's not like there's a bank vault or something valuable they'd be trying to get with the hostages

    And one hostage killed
    Well some Churches have pretty valuable treasures and lots of gold/silver/shiny things.

    But yeah, it's not something you'd be able to flog easily without people asking questions about where you got it from.

    Sounds like another Islamic nutjob job. Getting scarily common, when will our leaders do something about it?

    Apparently the attackers made reference to ISIS, almost certainly was an Islamic terrorist attack.


    Another death to add to my list of dead people that the left have created, the only small blessing here is that the victim was 86 years old.
    I don't see why you feel the need to say stuff like this. 'the blessing is that he's 86" , "hoping the victim wasn't a native"- it's just disrespectful- a human just got brutally killed. It's not the time to talk about how it was only an old guy- have some respect.

    I would rather the victim be 86 than somebody in the prime of their life, that is a small blessing. Some trying to virtue signal, it makes no difference to the reality of what is happening.

    France's former PM Jean-Pierre Raffarin warns: "Don't fall into the trap of religious war. These crimes are carried out by assassins who should face the full force of the law."

    They are dead yes? I don't see what the law has got to do with this now.

    Also Mr Raffarin, religious war is here whether you like it or not, this guy sounds like Théoden of Rohan.

    It was during the mass. They cut the throat of the priest and a 87yo lady.

    Yes.

    Priest dead.

    2 attackers dead.

    I'd call that a net loss for ISIS.

    Yes, you don't typically survive from a slit throat.

    Well not really because ISIS don't see themselves dying as a loss since they believe that they get 70 virgins to rape in 'Paradise'.

    This attack was never about numbers, it was purely symbolic, and has huge implications.

    As a Christian, I see this attack as even more evidence that Islam directly opposes the values that we hold as Christians and they are directly against our very existence.

    "Fight those of the People of the Book who do not [truly] believe in God and the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, who do not behave according to the rule of justice, until they pay the tax and submit to it."

    This attack is justified in Islam.

    RIP to the Priest. The Muslim attackers will feel God's wrath.
    If their religion is correct they wont do.

    Correct, hence my comment in my previous quote of yours.

    I thought it was 72 virgins?

    I dread to think where they will hit next, but sadly I have a good idea.
