They arrived in the church this morning and everyone was shouting stop it. Don't you realize what you're doing? Stop, stop! Nothing happened. They forced him to his knees and he tried to defend himself. That's when the drama began. I reacted when he attacked Father Jacques and he was on his knees and nearly made him fall.

That's when I ran. I got out fast. The attacker was busy giving the priest the knife, so he didn't see me leave. People were screaming. The couple screamed. Everyone reacted. It was filmed too. They filmed themselves. It was like a sermon around the altar in Arabic. It was terrible.
