“Allah Akbar” was shouted at the time of the attack perpetrator who stabbed and killed a police officer at the entrance to a police station in Rambouillet, near Paris, according to eyewitnesses and a police source.
The investigation of the case has been undertaken by the anti-terrorist prosecutor, as broadcast by APE-MPE. Its leader, Jean-François Richard, who rushed to the scene, said that his service undertook the investigation mainly because of the way the Tunisian perpetrator acted, the fact that the victim was a police officer “but also because of what the perpetrator said during the commission “of the murder.
According to a source in the prosecution, the Tunisian had conducted a “reconnaissance” search of the area before attacking the police officer. “France has lost one of its daily heroines in a barbaric act of endless cowardice,” said French Prime Minister Jean-Castex.
The woman was stabbed in the neck, two security sources said. The perpetrator was shot and killed by police. A third source said that the man was a legal immigrant in France and was not known to the security services until today.
Today’s attack came six months after a Chechen teenager beheaded a teacher in Conflan, a suburb of Paris, for allegedly showing his students sketches of the Prophet Muhammad in a freedom of expression class.
