Paris police killer was radicalised – French prosecutor

PARIS, An attacker who stabbed and killed four people at a Paris police station on Saturday adhered to a “radical vision of Islam,” France’s national anti-terrorist prosecutor said.

Initial investigations reveal that the man, employed at the station as an administrator since 2003, had contacts with people reportedly belonging to an ultraconservative movement, Jean-Francois Ricard told a briefing.

He was shot dead by a police officer after having carried out the premeditated murder of three police officers and a fellow administrator, whom he stabbed with knives intended for the purpose, CCTV images revealed.
