This is an ongoing event. a gunman is holding 70 hostage at a retirement home for monks in Montpellier, France. 

Terrorism has not been declared the motive, but it has not been ruled out.

PARIS (AP) — French police searched Friday for a masked gunman suspected of stabbing an elderly woman to death in a retirement home for Catholic missionaries in southern France, authorities said.

An unusually large police operation was launched to search for the suspected attacker, believed to be armed with a shotgun and a knife. The identity of the assailant and motive for the killing were unclear.

The press service for the gendarmes, or military police, couldn't say whether the incident was linked to a terrorist act. Security at religious and other sites has been increased after a string of Islamic extremist attacks on France.

A gendarme service spokesman said early Friday that more than 100 members of the security forces were dispatched to the village of Montferrier-sur-Lez, near the city of Montpellier in the southern tip of France. The spokesman was not authorized to be publicly named.


From RT:

          An armed man stormed a retirement home for monks in Montpellier, France, on Thursday evening, according to media reports.

At least one person was found dead, after the gunman entered around 9:45pm local time. The supervisor at the institution was reportedly able to issue an alert before he was fatally stabbed.

A Daily Mail report indicates that a man and a woman are dead and up to 70 monks are being held hostage.

The Daily Mail:

 Local residents claim the armed man stormed a retirement home at around 9.45pm but they are unsure of his motives as anti-terror police surround the building.

At least 70 monks, who have served as missionaries in Africa, reside in the home in Montferrier-sur-Lez, north of the city. 

Those killed are thought to be a woman supervisor, and a man who was working with her.

This feature length documentary seems to detail an epidemic of Islamic crime in Montpellier France.

Words fail me in enunciating the contempt I feel for such diabolical cowardice. I hope he kills himself before the mob gets to him.
