The man behind a deadly knife attack in central Paris was born in Chechnya and had been on police radar for radicalism, and his parents have been detained for questioning, French authorities said Sunday.
Counterterrorism investigators are working to determine whether the man who stabbed five people in a busy neighborhood in the heart of the French capital Saturday night had any help. The attacker killed a 29-year-old man and wounded four others, before being shot by police.
Among the injured was a 34-year-old man from Luxembourg, the foreign ministry of the small country north of France said in a statement. After emergency treatment, he was out of danger.
Witnesses reported hearing the man shouting Allahu akbar, the Arabic phrase for God is great, during the attack. The Islamic State group claimed the attacker was one of its fighters, but provided no evidence or details about his identity.
The assailant had been on a nationwide database of thousands of people suspected of links to radicalism, according to a judicial official. Extremists behind multiple attacks in France in recent years were also on radical watch lists.

I’m glad they were keeping an eye on him. Something bad could have happened.
I’ve got a feeling that these Deep State intel agencies use suspected-terrorist list like phone spammers use the do-not-call list.
Another big win for databases and watch lists.
I I guess the useless “data base” should be renamed “I will murder you” list. Typical governmental ineffectiveness and lunacy.
“The man behind a deadly knife attack in central Paris was born in Chechnya and had been on police radar ...”
Oh, so they are using the same 1939 radar the fumbling bureau is.
I have decided that the safest place on the planet to be, is in some sort of gov’t database. It seems to ensure that you will never be picked up.
Another known wolf.
Liberals can’t help putting their ego-preening virtue signalling, and Stalinist political correctness ahead of even life and death issues.
They let this known extremist in to kill their neighbors, to avoid the possibility of being accused of racism, or to signal just how non-racist they were.
A knife. To hell with the NKA!!! Any politician that takes money from the NKA has blood on his hands.
By design, so many have been allowed in, that the watch lists are far too big to actually watch.
Im always amazed how fast they get to these guys and take them out. There must be police on every block. Over here it seems much longer before they engage
They actually trademarked the phrase “A Sharper Future”?
Yeh...we’re better than that. When someone calls in a tip, we tell them have Islamphobia.
Indeed. Why are we - all Western countries, including the US - spending probably billions on these databases and supposed surveillance and security monitoring and ignoring absolutely all the terrorists who have been turned up by them? Until after the bombings, the stabbings, the mass shootings, etc...when the powers that be reveal that these guys have been under suspicion and are on their famous lists but they still have no idea of their motive.
There’s very little reason to let Chechens out of Chechnya. You get organised crime or radical Islam. Or both.
And the French? Occupational training means more than just trade school to the muzzies, you dolts.
Germany not far behind.
Remember the U.S. “Do not call” list? After registering with that, I actually got MORE telemarketer calls. Talk about government ineffectiveness, that is one shining example.
