FURY IN FRANCE: Pictures of riot police dragging a Catholic priest out of church sends shockwaves through the country
THE niece of French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has expressed her anger at shocking pictures of a Catholic priest being dragged out of a church – by riot police.
Marion Le Pen simply wrote “France, 2016 #SainteRita” alongside the image of the priest who refused to leave the mass he was holding in protest against the demolition of local church Sainte Rita.
The angry protests come just a day after Father Jacques Hamel, who had his throat slit by two depraved Islamic State fighters, was laid to rest in Rouen Cathedral on Tuesday.
Thousands of mourners turned out to pay respect to the elderly priest, who was murdered by jihadists as he delivered mass in a church in St Étienne-du-Rouvray, Normandy.
Social media users took to Twitter to express their shock at the protesting priest being dragged out of Sainte Rita, which is due to be demolished and turned into a car park.
