Ein Mann was beheaded in a subway near Paris. The anti-terror investigators of the French public prosecutor’s office have taken over the investigation. The anti-terrorist public prosecutor’s office confirmed this to the German press agency on Friday. The bomber was shot dead by the police, police insiders said on Friday. The transmitter BFM TV reports that he previously attacked the police. Eyewitnesses reported that the attacker shouted “God is great” in Arabic.
The incident occurred in the Paris suburb in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine northwest of Paris on late Friday afternoon, the French news agency AFP reported. The police wrote on Twitter that there is currently an operation there and that people should avoid the area.
First it was said that the alleged attacker had been injured by the police in the nearby town of Éragny-sur-Oise. Here, too, the police warned via Twitter to avoid the area without providing further information. The background to the incident was initially unclear.
