At least one person was killed on Tuesday during a hostage situation at a church near the northern French city of Rouen, a police source said.

The French interior ministry said that two hostage takers were "neutralised" in the attack.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve was on his way to the scene of the crime, which comes with France on edge after the Bastille Day massacre which left 84 people dead in Nice.
