Update (0938 EST): French government officials are postulating that this morning’s attack which has now killed three and injured five, one critically, is an act of terror. The suspect was released from prison eleven days ago. The suspect was detained in December 2021 for attacking Bercy migrant camp with a sword in Paris.
Quel effroi cette fusillade de 3 passants à Paris.Toutes mes pensées vont aux familles des victimes. Il semble s’agir d’un crime raciste contre la communauté kurde.Les idées de haine et de division sont dangereuses. Elles doivent être combattues avec la détermination nécessaire.
