Marseille Knife Attack: Two passengers killed

A man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ has stabbed two women to death with a butcher’s knife before being gunned down by soldiers in Marseille. One woman was repeatedly stabbed in the stomach before were throat ‘was slit’, while another woman was attacked from behind outside Saint Charles train station.

Eyewitnesses of this afternoon’s attack told how a man ‘dressed in black’ launched himself at the two women, who screamed for their lives as others ran for safety. The assailant was quickly gunned down by police and soldiers who were on patrol inside the station at the time as part of France’s ongoing state of emergency.

Anti-terror officials said they were investigating ‘links to a terrorist organisation’ and the ‘attempted killing of a public official’, the identity of which is currently unknown. Photographs from the scene showed a woman lying on the ground and armed police standing over the attacker. A white sheet was later placed over his body.
