At least two people have been killed in the French coastal city of Nice during a knife attack the local mayor has described as a "terrorist" incident.

The attack took place in a church, the Notre Dame Basilica, on Thursday.
Mayor Christian Estrosi said the attacker was shot by police, but is still alive and has been taken into custody.
"I am on the scene with the police who arrested the attacker. Everything points to a terrorist attack," Estrosi said on Twitter Thursday morning.
"At this moment, we have, without any doubt, two dead inside the church, in a horrible way," Estrosi said shortly afterwards.
He added that medics were "trying everything to save the life of a third victim who was able to flee."
