Anti-terrorist police are searching for a masked gunman after a female care worker was murdered and 70 monks were taken hostage at a retirement home in the south of France. The bloodbath unfolded at the Green Oaks care home in the village of Montferrier-sur-Lez, north of Montpellier, soon after 9.30pm last night.

Shots were heard as the unidentified intruder attacked members of staff and members of an elderly religious community belonging to the Society of African Missions.

Police have put up roadblocks around the area to try and detain the killer on the run.

This morning, a bar of military medals and a fake machine gun were found in an abandoned car close to the retirement home.

The fake machine gun is of the kind used the practice of ‘Airsoft’ – a game in which replica military weapons are used.

One warden is said to have ‘discreetly raised the alarm,’ before being bound and gagged by the man, who was armed with a sawn off shotgun and a knife, but was unharmed. All of the monks were too unharmed and later released.

The murdered victim, is said to be a 54-year-old female care worker, who was tied up, and then stabbed three times.
