(London Daily Mail) Two people are dead and more than 70 monks were being held hostage by a masked man with a knife and sawn-off shotgun in in Montpellier, France.

Local residents claim the armed man stormed the retirement home at around 9.45pm but they were unsure of his motives as anti-terror police surround the building.

At least 70 monks and nuns, who have served as missionaries in Africa, reside in the home in Montferrier-sur-Lez, north of the city.
