The authorities are still trying to determine whether the attack could be considered terrorist although multiple witnesses reportedly heard the attacker shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is great).

Located some 30 km west of Paris, Trappes is a poor city in the middle of the rich department of Yvelines. Half of its 30,000 inhabitants are under 25 and the unemployment rate is approaching 20%. The government has placed the city on the list of thirty districts that should receive additional staff for the police.

The man was killing people while shouting alluh snackbar and he's on a muslim terrorist watchlist (they seem really useful), but let's not draw conclusions here people, he could have been a white supremacist.
