Two armed men who took hostages at a church near Rouen in northern France are dead and one hostage has been killed, police and media have said.

The hostage-takers were reported to have been holding between four and six people at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.

A priest and two nuns, as well as churchgoers, were among those held, local media said.

France 3 television said a number of shots had been heard.

Police and the emergency services are at the scene. The area has been cordoned off and police have been telling people to stay away.

French TV said Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve was on his way to the town to be briefed by police.
