At least one dead in machete attack at two churches in Spain
Spanish authorities Wednesday night arrested a man who is suspected of using a machete to attack several people at two churches in the southern port city of Algeciras. The suspect seriously injured a priest at one church before killing a clergyman at a second church nearby. Both churches were holding communion at the time. The city will observe a day of mourning on Thursday.
What else is known about the attack? At least three other individuals were injured in the attack and Spain’s National Court said a judge has opened an investigation to determine if the incident was an act of terrorism. The suspect’s motivation remains unclear.
