A TERRORISM investigation has been opened in France after the fatal stabbing of a German tourist in Paris.
The attack has been linked to rising community tensions over the Gaza war, with the attacker, named only as “Armand R,” having told police he was angry about Muslims dying in the Middle East and believed France to be complicit in the war.
The attacker had spent four years in prison for planning a previous attack and was undergoing treatment for mental health problems, French media report.
He stabbed the tourist, a nurse, to death with a knife, fleeing over a bridge across the Seine when a taxi driver stopped to help the wife of the slain man. He then attacked two others, including a British national, with a hammer.
Anger at French support for Israel in its assault on Gaza runs deep among Muslim citizens, with rallies held in solidarity with Palestine in defiance of a state ban.
