Muslim kills man in French mosque
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.
