BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen condemned on Thursday the knife attack that killed three people in a suspected terrorist act at a church in the French city of Nice.

Calling it an “odious and brutal attack”, von der Leyen said the whole of Europe stood in solidarity with France and remained united and determined “in the face of barbarism and fanaticism”.
