“France: Man attacks police, yells ‘Allahu Akbar’ before being killed,” News Agencies, December 20, 2014, Israel News
Suspect entered police station near Tours, stabbed policewoman in face, and was shot to death while attempting to harm two other officers.
A man armed with a knife entered a police station in central France on Saturday in a likely attempt to harm officers. He attacked three police officers, wounding one, while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
Local security forces shot him to death on the scene in Joué-lès-Tours, the largest suburb of Tours. Some reports suggested the two other officers were also wounded in the incident.
Close to 2 pm local time (3 pm Jerusalem time), the suspect entered the police station and stabbed a policewoman in her face, and attempted to stab two other officers. A source familiar with the investigation told AFP that before he was shot to death by the local forces, he yelled the Takbir in Arabic.
French newspaper Le Figaro reported that the suspect ran furiously into the building. The three officers approached him and attempted to calm him down when he suddenly pulled a knife on them. The suspect wounded the officer in her cheek and ear, and tried to stab the other two officers while screaming “Allahu Akbar.”
A security official pulled out his firearm and shot him twice, killing the suspect. French police launched an investigation into the incident, which it believes to be motivated by terror; it was reported the suspect was an Islamist known for his radical positions.
“He is a Burundi native with a criminal record,” said the French news agency.
