Man attacks car dealership owner and shouts “God is great”
The newspaper “Le Figaro” reported, citing the police, that the attack occurred in a car dealership near a synagogue. The attacker was praying there when the owner of the car dealership pointed out to him that this was not the place for prayer.
The attacker then shouted “God is great” in Arabic and tried to stab the car dealership owner several times before fleeing. He was arrested a few minutes later.
