Asylum-Seeker From Afghanistan Arrested in France After Knife Attack That Left 1 Dead, 9 Injured

Isn’t diversity wonderful?

A 33-year-old asylum-seeker from Afghanistan was arrested near Lyon, France on Saturday after killing 1 person and injuring 9 others in a stabbing spree.

French officials told the Associated Press that they don’t believe the stabbing was terror-related.

Fox News reported:

A knife attack at a public transit station in eastern France Saturday left a 19-year-old dead and at least nine others injured, three of whom are in critical condition, authorities said Saturday.

The attack happened around 4:30 p.m. at the Laurent-Bonnevay metro station in the town of Villeurbanne, near Lyon, France Televisions reported.

The detained suspect is a 33-year-old Afghan citizen who had applied for asylum in France, police told the Associated Press. Fox News has learned that the suspect was not previously known to police.

“I am extremely shocked by the attack that has just occurred in the Lyon area during which one person died and several others [were] injured, some seriously,” Lyon Mayor Gerard Collomb tweeted.

Why is the Mayor of Lyon shocked by the stabbing spree? A package bomb exploded in Lyon a couple months ago which left 8 people injured.

France is on high alert after countless terror attacks yet they continue to be “shocked” as more ‘asylum-seekers’ and ‘refugees’ carry out terror attacks.
