At­tacker ram­page kills two

Daily Star Sunday - - NEWS -

TWO peo­ple have been killed and at least four hurt in a knife at­tack in France.

The at­tacker went into a to­bac­conist and stabbed the own­ers along with a cus­tomer yes­ter­day.

He then went to a butcher’s shop and at­tacked more peo­ple in Ro­mans-sur-Isère, near Greno­ble in the south east of the coun­try.

Po­lice said they had ar­rested a sus­pect, be­lieved to be a 33-year-old man born in Su­dan.

He was not known to the po­lice or in­tel­li­gence ser­vices.

Anti-ter­ror po­lice have not taken over the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and are mon­i­tor­ing de­vel­op­ments.

One of the wounded vic­tims is said to be in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron tweeted: “My thoughts are with the vic­tims of the Ro­mans-surIsère at­tack – the in­jured, their fam­i­lies.”

He promised that light would be shed on “this odi­ous act”.
