People Killed Following A Terror Attack In French Supermarket

Several French news reports said that Mr. Lakdim had demanded the release of Salah Abdeslam - the only surviving member of the Islamic State group that killed 130 people in and around Paris in a series of coordinated attacks in November 2015 - from detention in France.

The shooting attack unfolded when Lakdim hijacked a vehicle, killed its driver and attempted to mow down four police officers while opening fire at them.

The man first shot at four police officers in the historic town of Carcassonne before barricading himself in the Super-U supermarket in Trebes, about 8 km to the east.

Three people were killed and 16 others were wounded in attacks by a Franco-Moroccan gunman in and around Carcassonne, southern France on Friday.

"The man who carried out the attack in Trèbes in the south of France is a soldier of the Islamic State, who acted in response to our appeal to strike the members of the global [anti-Isis] coalition", the statement said.

The IS claimed responsibility for the shooting attack.

YPG fighters also escaped before the Turkish-led force moved in but not before burning infrastructure and mining the city. Despite an exodus of more than 150,000 people in recent days, thousands of civilians still remain in Afrin.

The gunman - a 26-year-old drug dealer monitored as a possible extremist - carried out three separate shootings in the medieval town of Carcassonne and nearby Trebes where he ended his rampage by taking hostages at a supermarket.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who was in Brussels at an European Union summit, described the hostage incident as a "terror attack" and said he would return to France immediately.

Collomb said a National Police lieutenant colonel shot the gunmanafter offering himself for at least one of the hostages. "So I went to see what was happening and I saw a man lying on the floor and another person, very agitated, who had a gun in one hand and a knife in the other".

After more gunshots were heard, the police stormed the store and killed Mr. Lakdim. The investigation into Lakdim is ongoing, with French police officers reviewing the contents of Lakdim's apartment in Carcassonne.

The incident, which French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said appears to be a "terrorist act", is being referred to the counter-terrorism unit of the Paris Prosecutor's office, AFP said.

But he was also under surveillance and since 2014 was on the so-called "Fiche S" list, a government register of individuals suspected of being radicalized but who have yet to perform acts of terrorism.
