By Chine Labbé and Michel Rose PARIS/SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France (Reuters) - Police had been hunting the second teenager who killed a priest in a church in France this week after a foreign intelligence tipoff that a suspected jihadist might be preparing an attack, police and judicial sources said.

Spectacular aerial footage of a three-day feeding frenzy has been captured off the coast of Western Australia, with over 30 sharks tearing into a whale carcass. While on a fishing trip on July 4, father and son Grant and Sam Eastland captured footage of a school of what they believe to be tiger sharks feasting on a dead whale. They told Australia’s 7 News the sharks were there for three days. Around the three-minute mark, the carcass makes it to shore, with many of the sharks following.
