Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor’s Office Investigates Attack on Police Officer.
(Face Of Nigeria Blog News)- The French president’s statement was critically received in Muslim regions.
Turkish President Recep Erdogan advised Macron to “check his head,” and the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that the French leader himself pushes people towards terrorism and creates conditions for nurturing extremist ideas in the minds of young people.
French President Emmanuel Macron described the murder of a police officer in the Parisian suburb of Rambouillet as a manifestation of “Islamist terrorism.”
“Stephanie worked at the Rambouillet Commissariat.
The whole nation is on her side, on the side of the police.
We will never give up in the fight against Islamist terrorism, ” Macron wrote on his Twitter.
The head of the government, Jean Casteks, who arrived at the scene, described the incident as a barbaric and cowardly attack and also said that it was a terrorist attack, BFM TV reports .
The investigation into the murder was taken up by the National Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor’s Office, to which the case was transferred by the investigating authorities of the Yvelines Department.
In turn, Valerie Pécresse, head of the Ile de France region, to which Paris and Rambouillet belong, said that several versions of what happened are being considered, including a terrorist attack.
The murder took place at the entrance to the police station.
The attacker attacked a woman entering the building and stabbed her in the throat with a knife.
Other police officers opened fire and killed the attacker.
The name of the offender has not yet been announced.
A police source for BFM TV said he was a Tunisian citizen. He arrived in France in 2009.
In October last year, in the French town of Conflans-Saint-Honorine, near Paris, an attack was carried out by an 18-year-old from Chechnya, who had refugee status in France.
He cut off the head of a local college teacher who showed his students cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a lesson on freedom of speech.
The attacker was shot dead by the police.
Macron called that murder “a typical Islamist terrorist attack”, promising that “obscurantism and violence will not pass.”
