(Tea Party PAC) – The coronavirus has not stopped jihadi attacks in Europe.
A Sudanese migrant shouting “Allahu Akbar!” went on a stabbing spree in France over the weekend, killing two and wounding “at least” seven others.
Unsurprisingly, the suspected perpetrator is said to be a 30-something asylum seeker.
The attack began outside a bakery in Romans-sur-Isère, which is in the south-east of the country.
Outlets including the MailOnline broke the story, citing local media.
Later, the BBC would report, without mentioning that the man hailed from Sudan and had cried out “Allahu Akbar!” before launching his attack, that he had attacked the shopkeeper and customers at a tobacconist before moving on to a nearby butcher’s shop.
Toutes mes pensées vont aux victimes de l’attaque de #RomansSurIsère et à leurs proches.
L’auteur présumé a été interpellé par la @PoliceNationale.
La DIPJ de Lyon est mobilisée, sous l’autorité de la Justice, pour établir la nature et les circonstances de cet acte odieux.

These first reports indicate that a butcher and tobacconist customer were among those who have already died.
France’s interior minister, Christophe Castaner, offered his condolences to the victims, five of which remain in critical condition.
He also confirmed that the suspect is under arrests and that investigators continue to confirm his motives. His roommate is also said to be under arrest.
It sounds like he made his motives pretty clear.
Are we seriously going to be coy about the intentions of a man hailing from a Muslim-majority nation going on a stabbing spree and shouting “Allahu Akbar!”
