I believe the correct word is “machete.”
It’s the weapon of choice among Moslems who wish to commit attacks that are entirely without motive.
French police earlier this week were forced to shoot an Afghan migrant dead in the infamous no-go suburb of Paris after he attacked them with a knife.
The incident took place on Wednesday afternoon at around 4:30 pm when police officers patrolling the Seine-Saint-Denis area came across the Afghan man who was wielding a “long knife”, French weekly newspaper Le Point reports.
When the knife-wielding Afghan lunged at the police, officers fired “several times” in self-defense, the police prefecture said. One of the officers who was involved in the incident suffered an injury to his shoulder and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.
A motive for the attack is still uncertain, as police have only just begun the primary stages of the investigation.
“No leads are ruled out, but, a priori, no terrorist comments were made,” a source inside the police prefecture said.
