France in shock after teacher beheaded in new terror attack

Terror has struck France for the second time in three weeks after the gruesome beheading of a history teacher in a Paris suburb.

The suspected attacker was shot and killed by police after the teacher died in the street in Conflans-Saint-Honorine.

French president Emmanuel Macron denounced what he called an “Islamist terrorist attack” and urged the nation to stand united against extremism.

Minor incident up at Fiskardo Thursday when a rope on the ZOE became entangled in the propellor causing the engine to shut down and the boat to drift onto rocks. Two occupants rescued unharmed, boat awaiting certification to sail.
