One person has been killed and several others injured after a knife attack near a church in the southern French city of Nice, reported French media on Thursday.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said a police operation was under way in the city, while Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said the suspect behind the attack - which Estrosi said looked like a terrorist incident - had been arrested.
