Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : New details have emerged regarding the brutal stabbing attack that took place in central Paris on Saturday night, resulting in the death of a tourist and the injury of two others. The attacker, identified as Armand Rajabpour-Miyandoab, has been known to French authorities for his radical Islamist beliefs and mental health issues. French prosecutors have opened an investigation into what is suspected to be a “terrorist plot.”

The incident occurred near the iconic Eiffel Tower at around 9:00 pm local time, during a busy weekend in the city. The attack took place amidst heightened tensions in France due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. The attacker, a 26-year-old French national of Iranian descent, was quickly apprehended by authorities after carrying out the knife and hammer assault.

According to prosecutors specializing in terrorist incidents, Rajabpour-Miyandoab is suspected of murder in relation to the death of a 23-year-old German-Filipino tourist. He will also face charges of attempted murder for the injuries inflicted upon a 66-year-old British citizen and a 60-year-old French national. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin revealed that at the moment of the attack, the assailant shouted “Allahu Akbar,” which means “God is greatest” in Arabic.

During the investigation, it was discovered that the attacker had posted a video on social media claiming responsibility for the attack. In the video, he spoke about “current events, the government, the murder of innocent Muslims.” Authorities are now delving into his medical history, as sources describe Rajabpour-Miyandoab as “very unstable and easily influenced.”

This is not the first time the attacker has come to the attention of law enforcement. In 2016, he was sentenced to four years in prison for planning another attack in the business district of La Defense, but he failed to carry it out. Fortunately, a taxi driver intervened during Saturday’s attack, potentially saving the life of the slain tourist’s wife. The attacker then proceeded to cross a nearby bridge, attacking others and injuring one individual with a hammer before being neutralized and arrested by pursuing police.

French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his condolences to the family of the victim and declared that justice should be served “in the name of the French people.” Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne also affirmed that France will not yield to terrorism. The country has experienced several Islamist extremist attacks in recent years, including the devastating November 2015 attacks in Paris that claimed the lives of 130 people.

With tensions rising in France due to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, security in Paris is under heightened scrutiny, especially as the city prepares to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. The investigation into the Paris stabbing continues as authorities seek to understand the motivations and background of the attacker.
