French Police couple killed in ‘ISIS linked’ attack

PARIS, June 14, (APP): French Police couple killed in ‘ISIS linked’ attack

 

A man who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State group stabbed a French policeman to death on Monday night before he was killed in a dramatic police operation, sources close to the investigation said.

 

A news agency linked to IS said the attack had been carried out by an "Islamic State fighter", days after posting a similar claim following the massacre at a gay club in Orlando, Florida.

 

French prosecutors have launched an anti-terror probe after the policeman and his partner were killed at their home in the Paris suburb of Magnanville.
