Fr Jacques Hamel life was taken in his church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen by two men who had pledged allegiance to the terror group, ISIS.France’s Muslim council, the CFCM, supported Muslims to show “solidarity and compassion” over the murder.

“We are all Catholics of France,” said Anouar Kbibech, the head of the CFCM.The servicewas held in Rouen as well as in Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral.The Archbishop of Rouen, Dominique Lebrun said,”We are touched,It’s an important gesture of fraternity. They’ve told us, and I think they’re sincere, that it’s not Islam which killed Jacques Hamel.”
