French media reported that the security services in Lyon arrested a man armed with a knife who was planning to carry out a stabbing attack, hours after a deadly attack in Nice, in which three people were killed.
The channel, News, quoted a source in the local police, Billion, as confirming that the suspect was arrested today near a train station in the city, when he was intending to ride the tram.
According to the channel, the police revealed that the arrested Afghan immigrant has passed the validity period of the residence permit granted to him, and investigations are now underway with his phone to reveal his contacts inside and outside the country.
This is the third attack or attempted attack in France since the beginning of the day, and a man armed with a knife this morning killed three people in the Notre Dame church in Nice, and the police managed to arrest him, then the police killed another gunman who threatened to carry out a stabbing attack in the city of Avignon.
These developments come after the murder of history teacher, Samuel Patti, by a Muslim student earlier this month, after the teacher showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad during a lesson on freedom of expression.
The French government and a large part of the country’s citizens saw this crime as an attack on freedom of expression, while President Emmanuel Macron expressed support for the cartoons and pledged to take measures to fight what he described as “Islamic separatism” in his country.
