Hammer and knife attack in Paris: the two injured "in good health", a German-Filipino tourist was killed

Sylvie Claire / December 5, 2023

The two people injured with hammers on Saturday evening in an attack near the Eiffel Tower, which also left one person dead from a stab wound, are "in good health", French Health Minister Aurélien Rousseau said on Sunday.
 
A German-Filipino tourist was stabbed to death in Paris on Saturday evening, and two other people - a 66-year-old British citizen and a 60-year-old French citizen - were injured by hammer blows. They are "in good health" and "not life-threatening", said the French minister.
 
The assailant, a Frenchman born in 1997, was arrested shortly after the incident and taken into custody.
 
Known for Islamism and psychiatric disorders, he was subject to psychiatric "monitoring", without hospitalization, the minister added.
 
"At the end of his period of incarceration, he had been ordered to be monitored" from a psychiatric point of view, explained Aurélien Rousseau on France 3 about the assailant released from prison in 2020, from a source close to the case, after a conviction for a planned attack in 2016.
 
The Pnat anti-terrorist prosecutor's office told AFP it had opened an investigation into the murder and attempted murder in connection with a terrorist enterprise, and into criminal terrorist conspiracy.
