Two people have been killed during a knife attack at a Marseille train station, according to police. The assailant, who was reportedly shouting Allahu Akbar, was shot dead by an army patrol at the scene.
The incident took place at the Saint-Charles train station in Marseille on Sunday, when a man attacked passers-by with a knife. One person was killed by the assailant at the scene, while another succumbed a short while after, according to police chief Olivier de Mazières.
The attacker, who was reportedly shouting Allahu Akbar, was shot dead by an army patrol. At least two shots were fired, local media reported, citing witnesses. The attacker is described as a man in his late twenties, who was not carrying any ID. The investigation team is currently running his fingerprints through their databases. The initial findings indicate that the attacker was known to the police as a common criminal, local media report citing police sources.
Both of the attackers victims were women, the French interior ministry said. One of the victims had her throat slit, while the other was stabbed in her stomach, French media report, citing police sources. The victims were 17 and 20-years-old, according to media reports.
There has been lately a surge in the so-called lone-wolf attacks, similar to the todays incident in Marseille. The Sentinel patrols themselves have also been targeted by terrorists, as at least seven attacks on patrolling soldiers have taken place.
Despite the state of emergency, which has been renewed six times so far, the country still experiences frequent terrorism-related incidents. The latest extension was in July and is expected to last until November 1.

But, but, but..
... that can’t be true! It must be one of those Hugenots. After all, Islam is a ‘religion of peace’©!
RIP (for the victims)
Shame they killed the guy. Now his motives will remain forever unknown.
I just can’t imagine what his motivation might be.....
Two young girls killed in vicious ways.
The poor girls.
Glad not more but even so, those poor girls.
And a hash tag, dont forget those hash tags, they work every time
Darn, ya mean he didnt live long enough to take a knee
So the soldiers shot a knife attacker who was already dead and while dead, he shouted Allahu Akbar and killed 2.
Marseille-—the armpit of France.
I thought he was dead and attacking knives.
These French soldiers had to kill this hostile alien within their borders and not on their border. Wonder if that stark reality or irony will be understood by the French themselves.
That’s some powerful shoutin doncha know.
Even if the dip wad was still alive, and yelling Allahu Akbar, and saying death to all infidel non Muslims, and Islam will take over the world, the authorities would still be trying to figure out his motive, 50 years from now.
I’ll wager the muzzie demanded sex from both of them and they rightly refused.
So he attacked a dead knife? Whatever that is?
Exactly. Big, brave jihadi. Stabbed two girls and expects to receive a fine reward in "paradise."
The French are still paralyzed by those lunatics.
When are the French NOT “paralyzed “?
“I just cant imagine what his motivation might be.....”
Definitely seems like it could be an act of terrorism. Just sayin’. Don’t want to get all judgemental.
“Even if the dip wad was still alive, and yelling Allahu Akbar, and saying death to all infidel non Muslims, and Islam will take over the world, the authorities would still be trying to figure out his motive, 50 years from now”
This is under investigation.
It will ALWAYS be under investigation.
