A woman dressed in black and wearing a “veil” attacked two people with a box cutter at a French Supermarket in La Seyne-sur-Mer, southeastern France, on Sunday. As she stabbed a 60 year old male in the chest, and lightly injured a female checker, she allegedly shouted “allahu akbar.” Both victims have “non-life-threatening injuries.”
Frnech police responsed with a statement that she is a “person with known mental issues.” The 24 year old woman was apparently born in France, but was not previously known to French authorities.
“It appears to be an isolated case by a person with known psychological problems – though that doesn’t exclude the possibility that she may have been radicalized…We don’t yet know if this is a terrorist act, but in any case it was terrifying.” Toulon prosecutor Bernard Marchal
Police said that she asked them to kill her as they were attempting to make the arrest. They searched her home for any connections to ISIS. There are many terror groups, and not all of them are ISIS.
