French priest Father Jacques Hamel, who was murdered in an attack by two extremists on his Catholic church in a Normandy town, will be laid to rest Tuesday.


According to his diocese, the funeral for the 85-year-old priest will be held at the 11th-century Gothic cathedral of the northern city of Rouen, where Muslims and Christians came together to mourn his death at a mass Sunday.


He will then be buried in a ceremony attended only by close family members, at a location which has not been revealed.


Hamel became the latest victim of a terror attack in France when two 19-year-old extremists stormed his church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray last Tuesday and slit his throat at the altar.
