Paris - A French Muslim leader says a 31-year-old worshipper believed to have mental troubles entered a mosque in northern France and beat two men with a baseball bat, killing one and badly wounding the other.

Abdelkader Aoussedj said the attacker identified only by his first name Seddik entered the tiny Ennour mosque in the city of Arras after Friday afternoon prayers and carried out the attack on two elderly men.

Aoussedj - a regional official in charge of northern France for the Grand Mosque of Paris - said the entire community was "shocked" over the attack.

French police and Interior Ministry spokespeople could not be reached for comment, despite repeated calls from The Associated Press.

The regional government office declined immediate comment.

    This headline is so misleading. Is it not more important that the man has mental conditions than being muslim ? Why not say muslim man kills muslim man in frech mosque ? If a muslim kills anyone its a headline ?

      The-Azanian This is an interesting comment you make , one can push this further, and say , what has race, gender , age and even nationality, got to do with an issue. No doubt, one would have a better world, without these qualifications!!
