Let us recall that earlier in France there was a series of attacks on citizens. In Nice, a native of Tunisia attacked parishioners of a Christian church with a knife, stabbing three. He managed to behead two of his victims before the police arrived. When detained, the raider shouted: "Allah Akbar". Also, an Islamist attack on police officers took place in another French city - Avignon.
