POLICE in France are hunting a knifeman after a pensioner was reportedly slashed in the throat outside a church.

The 75-year-old victim collapsed in a pool of blood after the attack shortly before noon today in Montpellier city centre.

The wounded man was said to be in a critical condition.

Police closed off surrounding roads as they began hunting the attacker.

It came hours after four women were stabbed in a St Patrick's Day knife rampage in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In October, three people including a church warden were stabbed to death by a terrorist at a basilica in Nice, France.
