… But it’s not terrorism.
Apparently, the perpetrator now needs to shout “Allahu Akbar” for an attack to be considered terror-related in France.
Gotta get that verbal confirmation, goyim.
That’s how you know he’s being serious about it.
The assailant who stabbed several people in a frenzied knife attack in central Marseille this week chose his victims on the basis of their nationality, according to reports.
Three men and one women were injured in Tuesday’s attack, which saw convicted killer Karim L. shot dead by police this week after he went on a stabbing spree at just before 5 pm on the Canebière, Marseille’s famous historic high street.
Local media said the 36-year-old homeless man, who had previously spent 14 years in prison for murdering his father, began his attack on pedestrians — one of whom was reportedly seriously hurt after sustaining slash wounds to the throat — near the city’s ancient port before progressing towards the Noailles quarter.
Approached by police who rushed to the scene, he pulled out a handgun and shot at the officers, who fatally wounded the suspect when they returned fire, authorities told the French press.
A police source told the broadsheet Le Figaro that Karim had “addressed passers-by in French and in a foreign language, quizzing people on their nationality, before stabbing them — or not — based on the answers he received”.
Authorities are not currently investigating the attack as terror-related, according to reports, with Marseille’s public prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux telling a press conference that the assailant had not shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during his stabbing spree.
