One dead, six wounded in France after suspected knife attack

One dead, six wounded in France after suspected knife attack”

One person has been found dead and six others wounded in the French city of Villeurbanne, near Lyon, after a suspected knife attack, according to a local police source. "One carried a kitchen knife and the other a kitchen spit", a police source said. The motive for the attack was not clear.

Local police unions said it's too soon to know of any reason to suspect terror.

In September, seven people were injured, including two British tourists, during an attack by a man wielding a knife and an iron bar in northeastern Paris, police said.

The national anti-terrorism prosecutor's office so far had not been asked to participate in the investigation.

An AFP journalist at the scene witnessed a body being taken away in an ambulance and traces of blood on the ground.

"He stabbed a guy in the head, he cut the ear of a lady and the lady was dying at the bus stop and no-one came to help", she added, sobbing.

The mayor said the victim who died was a 19-year-old man and three of the injured were in critical condition. Paramedics treated another 20 people at the scene for shock.

The suspect provided contradictory information to police, but the attack in the town of Villeurbanne did not appear to be terrorism-related, the official told The Associated Press.
