Three people were killed and several injured near a church in the Notre-Dame area of Nice this morning, including one 70-year-old woman who was decapitated. The culprit was a jihadist who yelled "Allahu Akbar" throughout the attack.
Meanwhile, in Avignon, a man wielding a knife while also shouting "Allahu Akbar" was shot dead after trying to attack police officers who were patrolling the street.
In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a French guard at the French consulate was also wounded by an attacker.
The attacks followed the beheading of school teacher Samuel Paty in Paris earlier this month by a Chechen jihadist who sought revenge for Paty showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to pupils in his class.
