PARIS TERRORISM PROBE
FRENCH prosecutors have opened an investigation that treats a fatal knife attack at Paris police headquarters as a potential act of terrorism.
A long-time police employee stabbed four colleagues to death on Thursday before he was shot and killed.
A background search led to the investigation for murders committed “in relation with a terrorist enterprise” and “criminal association with terrorists”, prosecutors said.
They gave no details about the evidence that persuaded them a terror investigation was warranted.
Police officials said the decision came from easily accessible sources found in a search of the attacker’s home.
