France: Accused knife attacker linked to Islam

May 29, 2013

As if you ever doubted it for a moment…

Police investigating the stabbing of a French soldier in Paris have arrested a suspect who sources describe as an adherent of ‘‘radical Islam’’.

‘‘The suspected perpetrator of the attack on a soldier Saturday evening in La Defense (business district) was arrested this morning,’’ Interior Minister Manuel Valls said in a statement.

Sources close to the investigation said the 22-year-old man had been a follower of a ‘‘traditionalist, even radical Islam for the last three or four years’’.
