ISLAMIST Shoots Two Police Officers on French Reunion Island

An Islamist on French Reunion Island shot two police officers as they tried to arrest him.

For some reason, the story did not make much press in France.
The Local reported:

A man suspected of being a radicalised Islamist shot and wounded two policemen on the French Indian Ocean island of Réunion as they tried to arrest him on Thursday, authorities announced.

“The man refused to be arrested and fired a rifle at police,” a local government official on the island said.

The official said that the suspect — a man in his twenties who is believed to be a recent convert to Islam — was now in custody.

The lives of the two officers are not in danger.
