A man armed with a machete attacked the members of two Catholic churches in Spain on Wednesday, Jan 25, 2023, leaving at least one dead and four injured, The Telegraph reports.

One of the injured, a priest, is in serious condition with a neck injury.

According to witnesses, the man entered the churches in Algeciras located in Southern Spain, shouting ‘death to Christians’ and ‘Allahu akbar’.

Authorities believe it could be a terrorist attack.

Police have since arrested a 25-year-old Moroccan, who they believed acted alone. The man had been issued deportation orders a year earlier.
