Who could this unidentified man be?
Hajis gonna haj.
It’s the core of their culture.
A knife wielding man has attacked a French soldier outside a Metro station in Paris today while praising Allah.
The attacker approached the soldier from behind and then lunged at him with the blade at Chatelet metro station at 6.30am this morning.
The victim managed to wrestle him to the ground and he was arrested by armed police as he shouted ISIS slogans.
The unidentified man is said to have rushed at a patrol of soldiers wearing combat uniforms and brandishing assault rifles.
‘He was restrained, and nobody was injured,’ said a source investigating the case on Friday morning.
The man was taken to the main Chateletpolice station, and now faces a range of terrorist charges.
The soldiers’ job is to protect vulnerable areas of the capital, including transport hubs such as Chatelet, which is used by thousands of commuters and tourists every day.
But many have complained that they are now easy targets themselves, with lone wolf attackers regularly trying to kill or wound them. In January six Sentinelle soldiers were injured when a car smashed into them close to the headquarters of France’s anti-terrorism police unit in the Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret.
Two of the infantrymen were seriously wounded, while the attacker was later shot repeatedly following a manhunt and a dramatic motorway chase.
