With the coronavirus taking up the majority of national news time you may not have heard that there was yet another terror attack in France.
This past weekend a 33 year old Sudanese asylum seeker went on a mass stabbing attack leaving 2 dead and 5 injured in the town of Romans-sur-Isère. He was arrested after police found him praying on his knees in Arabic. A terror investigation has been initiated as police also found hand written documents with religious connotations in his apartment. Two other men of Sudanese origin who lived with him are being questioned. The suspect was granted refugee status in 2017 and given a 10 year residency permit.
Another mass stabbing attack occurred at a Pilot truck stop in Tennessee on Tuesday. Three women employees were killed and one other victim was injured when 33 year old truck driver Idris Abdus-Salaam started stabbing people inside the truck stop. He was shot and killed by police after being confronted and refusing to drop the knife in the parking lot. Police have not given a motive but say they are looking at writings in a notebook with “graphic writing” was found in his truck.
