A woman who allegedly shouted “Allahu akbar” attacked two people with a box cutter at a supermarket in southern France on Sunday before she was arrested, local media reported.
The incident took place around 10:30 a.m. at a supermarket Leclerc in the Mediterranean city of La Seyne-sur-Mer, located near Marseilles.
Witnesses told Var-matin the young woman attacked a customer and employee.
The woman was dressed in black and wearing a veil at the time, shouting “Allahu akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic — before she was placed under control by people intervening, according to Var-matin.
Europe 1 radio quoted Toulon prosecutor Bernard Marchals as saying that a customer in the store in La Seyne-sur-Mer was injured in the chest in the Sunday morning attack and hospitalized.
A woman at the market’s cash register was injured too, but less seriously.
Marchal added that the attacker has been detained. Additional details were not immediately available.
