Shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great’), a 24-year-old woman dressed in black and wearing a veil stabbed a customer at a store with a box cutter and injured one of the employees in the eye in La Seyne-sur-Mer, south-eastern France, on Sunday, BFM TV reports citing a local prosecutor. Witnesses confirmed to an AFP reporter that the woman shouted “Allahu Akbar” before the attack. The attacker, whose name has not been divulged yet, is in police custody and is being questioned to check whether she has been radicalised. The prosecutor said she may be suffering from mental disorder. The woman was not previously known to the intelligence services. Her house is being searched to check whether she has any links to Islamic State.
