The perpetrator of an October knife attack inside Notre-Dame de Nice has been charged with terrorism, French officials said Monday.
Brahim Aouissaoui, 21, has charged with “assassinations in connection with a terrorist enterprise” and “participation in a criminal terrorist association”, authorities said Dec. 7.
The attacker on Oct. 29 killed three people in the church, including a 44-year-old mother of three; a 60 year old woman who had come to the church to pray; and the church’s 55 year old sacristan.
The attacker used a knife to carry out the killings and reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he did so.
