After three people were killed in a terrorist attack in a basilica in Nice, France, on Thursday, a Vatican spokesman condemned the violence and said that Pope Francis was praying for the victims and those who mourn them.
Pope Francis "is informed of the situation and is close to the Catholic community in mourning," Matteo Bruni said Oct. 29.
According to the Holy See press office director, "it is a time of pain, in a time of confusion. Terrorism and violence can never be accepted."
An attacker killed three people at the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Nice at around 9 a.m. local time, according to French media.
