Woman shouting 'Allahu akbar' stabs shoppers in French supermarket

Illustrative

The 24-year-old perpetrator, who was born in France, hadn't been previously known to the intelligence services.

"Allah is great" in Arabic - wounded two people with a box cutter Sunday at a supermarket in southern France before she was arrested. A woman working the cash register was hurt less seriously, French radio station Europe 1 quoted the prosecutor in nearby Toulon as saying.

The attacker has now been detained, and while Toulon prosecutor Bernard Marchal has not revealed the full details of the incident it appears to bear some hallwarks of a radical Islamic terror attack. Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment. She has been taken into custody and is being checked for terrorist links.

He added that "contrary to what was said at the start, she was not wearing a veil, but a black tunic over black pants and black glasses".

France has been on high alert following a string of jihadist attacks since early 2015, often by people who have become radicalised or claim to have acted in the name of the Islamic State group.

She has meetings planned this week with the leaders of Italy and France, and an European Union summit is scheduled June 28-29. The CSU is more conservative than Merkel's CDU and its paramount aim is to maintain its dominance in Bavaria.

Police are still trying to work out if the woman, who has a history of psychiatric problems, had planned the attack or acted on the spur of the moment.

An investigation has been launched into possible terrorist connections, with police having searched the attacker's home to determine whether she has links to the Islamic State terrorist organization.

More than 240 people have been killed in terrorist attacks since the massacre at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris in January 2015.

In March, an hours-long attack and hostage-taking in a supermarket near the southern French town of Carcassonne left four people dead.
