Muslim leaders in Rouen refuse to bury Jihadi church attacker who slit a priest's throat before being shot dead by police
by Jennifer Newton
Muslim leaders in northern France are refusing to bury the body of one of the jihadi attackers who stormed a church and slit a priest's throat before being shot dead by police.
Adel Kermiche, 19, and Abdelmalik Petitjean burst into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Rouen on Tuesday during morning mass.
They took several nuns and members of the congregation before they forced 85-year-old Father Jacques Hamel to kneel at the altar before slitting his throat, while filming the incident on a mobile phone.
