Sources claim that two French soldiers were slightly injured in a knife attack by a man in the southern resort of Nice on Tuesday, close to a Jewish community center.
No motive has been given for the attack, which the justice ministry is treating as a terrorist act.
It appears the man had just left a tram on which he had been fined for not buying a ticket. “He was carrying identification documents with him that didn’t give his identity, but bore the name Moussa Coulibaly,” said the Mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi.
Amedy Coulibaly was the gunman who killed four people at a kosher market in Paris on Jan. 9.
“A few moments later we arrested a second man who seems to be his accomplice,” said the mayor.
