Islamic state posts video of men it says were French church attackers

36

CAIRO Islamic state’s news agency on Wednesday posted a video of two men it said were those who attacked a church in France, pledging allegiance to the group’s leader.

The video was posted by Amaq news agency a day after two men burst into a church in Normandy during a service, forced the priest to his knees and slit his throat.
