More horrifying details emerged Wednesday about an attack on a French village church even as the country's main religious leaders sent a message of unity and solidarity after meeting with President Francois Hollande in Paris.Emotions in France that were raw after a July 14 truck attack in Nice, which killed 84 people became more frazzled after the church in Normandy was attacked. Both deadly attacks were claimed by Daesh (ISIS). With the attack threat for France ranked extremely high, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said France is working to protect 56 remaining summer events and may consider canceling some.Two attackers took five hostages Tuesday at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in northwest France and slit the throat of the elderly priest saying morning Mass.

Two nuns were held hostage along with the couple and the priest.
