Terrorist Attack in France Results in 3 Dead


What Happened:

  • At least 3 people were killed in a knife attack in Nice, France on Thursday. According to the Mayor, the attack was a terrorist incident.

  • The attacker was shot by police and is now in custody.

  • This is the third attack over the last two months in France. It is believed the attacks are a response from the Muslim community over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that were republished by the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

  • Charlie Hebdo was famously attacked by two Islamist gunmen in 2015 when they first published these caricatures. The attack resulted in 12 deaths and several more wounded.

  • Said Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi, "I am on the scene with the police who arrested the attacker. Everything points to a terrorist attack."

  • He added, "He [the assailant] cried ‘Allah Akbar!’ over and over, even after he was injured...The meaning of his gesture left no doubt."

  • France's Anti-Terrorist department is investigating the attack.
