TERROR in France: Afghan man arrested after mass knife attack

The police forces in France have arrested an Afghan man in connection to a mass knife attack outside Lyon city of the country, it has been reported.

The attack near a commuter train station left one person dead and at least 9 others wounded.

The authorities had announced that a 33-year-old Afghan citizen who had applied for asylum in France had carried out the attack.

The authorities further added that the attack claimed the life of a 19-year-old man.

Furthermore, the authorities said the attack also wounded 9 others and at least 3 of them are in a critical condition.

An official with the Lyon regional administration said that at least one other suspect in the attack on Saturday was still on the run.

French authorities have made no official comment about the assault.

Local police unions say it’s too soon to know of any reason to suspect terror.

France has been the victim of a string of Islamist-inspired terror attacks since 2015 that have cost hundreds of lives.
