The French police arrested a man who wounded seven people in a knife attack in France’s capital of Paris downtown, media reported.
There was no initial sign that the Paris knife attack was linked to terrorism, a judicial source told Reuters after saying that the French police arrested a man who wounded seven people in the attack.
In August, two people were killed and one was seriously wounded in a knife attack in the Paris suburb of Trappes. The Daesh terror organization back then claimed that they had carried out the attack, but French prosecutors did not treat the incident as a case of terrorism.
France has suffered from an increase in violent offences this summer, with stabbing attacks, sexual assaults, and fights occurring across the country.
