Passer-by stabbed to death in Paris terrorist attack

Passer-by stabbed to death in Paris terrorist attack”

Expressing sadness over the latest terrorist attack in Paris, Trump said, "So sad to see the terror Attack in Paris".

The man, identified as naturalized Frenchman Khamzat Azimov, carried out the attack Saturday night in a lively area of theaters and restaurants near the city's historic opera house. The Islamic State group claimed the attacker as one of its "soldiers".

French media also reports that at least six members of France's Chechen community were arrested by the authorities as part of the ongoing investigation into terrorist attacks that occurred in Barcelona and Cambrils in August 2017.

Counterterrorism investigators want to know if the assailant had help or co-conspirators.

Mr Azimov, who arrived in France in the early 2000s as a political refugee, had been on both of France's official watchlists for suspected radicals - the Fiche-S and the more targeted File for the Prevention of Terrorist Radicalisation (FSPRT) - since 2016 but had no criminal record.

Laurent Wauquiez, the Les Républicains' leader, urged Mr Macron to invite all parties to come forward with their proposals to combat terrorism in order to come up with a "more efficient" counter-terrorism policy. His Republicans party called on centrist President Emmanuel Macron to take measures to "preventively intern the most risky individuals" listed as radicalized.

French authorities have previously explained that the register, designed as a tool for intelligence services, contains the names of thousands of individuals suspected of being radicalized but who have yet to perform acts of terrorism. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb tweeted a photo of himself meeting with first responders to the attack, saying in French, "They watch for the fatherland". He had been a French citizen since 2010. He was born in the largely Muslim Russian republic of Chechnya, where extremism has long simmered.

France has participated in a US -led coalition battling Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and it also intervened in Mali to push back an Islamist rebellion in the West African state.

The incident happened in cental Paris, in the Opera district. One of his neighbors told reporters he was a "very smiling" man, with a "great generosity".
