Paris recently underwent a gruesome attack, leaving four people wounded.
According to reports, an attacker carried out a horrifying knife stabbing. It resulted in an aura of terror and pools of blood on the streets. Meanwhile, authorities confirmed the exact destination as close to the old Charlie Hebdo Magazine headquarters.
Police feared that initially, two men carried out the heinous crime. However, they’re now changing statements, claiming that only one person is involved. He was arrested, soon after the attack.
Two victims were confirmed as belonging to Premieres Lights, which is French-based news as well as video agency. Witnessed claimed the attacker had plenty of blood over his clothes, present close to Opera Bastille.
Currently, two victims are fighting for their lives. That just goes to show the grave nature of the injuries. Meanwhile, police officers are still searching the area for possible clues. They are also currently questioning the arrested suspect.
One investigating source confirmed how two victims are in ‘a very critical condition.’ It would be wrong to term them as very bad. The haunting stabbing attack took place in Paris on Friday afternoon and citizens are still in shock.
Investigators also confirmed how they saw two people running in a hurry, down the streets. Similarly, he confirmed how authorities found a suspect device.
However, it’s still unclear as to what led the attack. What could the attacker’s possible motivation be? Above all, authorities are considering a possibility to links with Charlie Hebdo too. And that’s because the magazine came under attack by Islamic militants in 2015. For that reason, they shifted their premises.
A 23-year-old witness, Hassani Erwan, told news agencies how he went to have a peaceful lunch at a restaurant. And that’s when the owner started yelling and crying. He was saying, ‘leave, leave, there is an attack.’
And that’s when he made a run for it, locking him and his accomplice into a shop, alongside four others.
Meanwhile, French police fear that those responsible for causing terror might strike again. And for that reason, they’re taking all safety precautions.
