Who is the aggressor?

In the evening, this man had not yet been formally identified. According to the first police on the spot, he shouted “Allah Akbar” before being killed by the police, we learned from a source close to the investigation. He was armed with a knife, according to a police source.

Investigators are now trying to find out if he himself posted a message on Twitter showing a photo of the victim’s head with a message to Emmanuel Macron, “the leader of the infidels”, and who says he wants to avenge the one “who dared to belittle Muhammad”.

What is the context?

This attack comes three weeks after the one in front of the former premises of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, in the midst of the January 2015 attacks, which decimated the editorial staff of the satirical weekly. The editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo has been the subject of new threats, from Al Qaeda in particular, since the republication of the Muhammad cartoons on September 2 for the opening of the trial.

The representation of the prophets is strictly prohibited by Sunni Islam. Ridiculing or insulting the Prophet Muhammad is punishable by death in some Muslim countries.
