The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - WORLD NEWS -

A man who fa­tally stabbed two women out­side Mar­seille’s main train sta­tion had been de­tained for shoplift­ing and re­leased the day be­fore the at­tack, and used mul­ti­ple fake iden­ti­ties in a se­ries of pre­vi­ous ar­rests, au­thor­i­ties said.

French of­fi­cials are study­ing the sus­pect’s mo­bile phone and work­ing to de­ter­mine whether he had ac­com­plices or direct links to Is­lamic State (IS), which claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the stab­bings at the Saint Charles sta­tion.
