The Islamic State terror network claimed Sunday it was behind a spear strike that ended with two women dead at the Marseille train station in southern France.
The claim was carried in a statement Sunday night by the ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency. It said the attacker on Sunday was one of its “soldiers” who acted in response to the group’s calls to target countries involved in the U.S.-led faction opposing ISIS in Syria and Iraq. French security forces photographed and killed the attacker.
Police beginnings told Sky News the attacker hollered “Allahu Akbar” as he carried out the two attacks at Gare St. Charles.
