On Friday, reliable sources reported that four people were injured in a white weapon attack in the French capital, Paris, near the old headquarters of the “Charlie Hebdo” newspaper. The director of Paris security said that two of the injured were in “a very dangerous condition,” and that two suspects had fled, but the police arrested one of them later on the steps of the Bastille Opera in Paris.
French Prime Minister Jean Castex, who arrived at the Interior Ministry’s emergency room to monitor the situation, said the Paris attack took place with a knife. While the police imposed a security cordon around the former headquarters of the newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
The stabbing incident coincides with court sessions in Paris of the alleged accomplices of the perpetrators of the attack on Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, which killed 12 people, as well as a Jewish store.
