(K.R.) MAN SHOUTS “ALLAHU AKBAR” WHILE KNIFING NINE PEOPLE IN FRENCH TOWN ON LOCKDOWN

A man wielding a knife attacked residents venturing out to shop in a town under lockdown south of the French city of Lyon Saturday, killing two people. Up to 7 others were wounded.

The assailant is said to have shouted 'Allahu Akbar' before knifing the people in Romans-sur-Isère, southern France.

The anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office said the attack took place at 11am local time.

The alleged attacker was arrested by police nearby. Prosecutors did not identify him. They said he had no documents but claimed to be Sudanese and to have been born in 1987.

Like the rest of France, the town’s residents are on coronavirus-linked lockdown. The victims were likely carrying out their weekend food shopping on the street that has bakeries and grocers.
