L’émotion ne retombe pas, bien au contraire. Et les médias du monde entier racontent ce qui s’est passé. Comme la BBC :
« An 84-year-old priest was killed and four other people taken hostage by two armed men who stormed his church in a suburb of Rouen in northern France. The two attackers, who said they were from the so-called Islamic State (IS), slit Fr Jacques Hamel’s throat during a morning Mass, officials say. Police later surrounded the church, in St-Etienne-du-Rouvray, and shot dead both hostage-takers. One of the hostages is in a critical condition in hospital.
The attack happened during morning Mass at the historic church, situated in a quiet square of St-Etienne-du-Rouvray. A nun, who identified herself as Sister Danielle, said she was in the church at the time. « They forced [Fr Hamel] to his knees. He wanted to defend himself, and that’s when the tragedy happened, » she told French media.
« They recorded themselves. They did a sort of sermon around the altar, in Arabic. It’s a horror ». »
Trois dernières phrases, pure tragédie.
