Sexton dies in machete attack on churches in southern Spain

The man wielding a machete initially attacked and injured the priest in a church, the Interior Ministry said. Then he stormed into a nearby second church, raged there and attacked the sexton. "The sexton was able to escape into the open, but was caught up by the perpetrator and fatally injured." The AFP news agency learned from police circles that the attacker was wearing a long coat "and shouted something".

The interior ministry said the attacker was disarmed and arrested just moments after his second act. It had initially spoken of one dead and several injured, but later corrected this information. According to his parish, the injured priest is a 74-year-old.
