World | 29 Oct 2020 11:25 pm

Catholics across France “refuse to give into fear” following the knife attack at a church in Nice, the French Bishop’s Council has said.

“Through these awful acts, it is our entire country that is hit,” the council said in a statement, CNN reports.

“This terrorism aims to set anxiety within our society. There is an urgent need to stop this gangrene and to regain the essential fraternity that will make us stand in front of these threats.”

The council said church bells rang out across the country at 3:00 p.m. local time in tribute to the victims.
