A Muslim Terrorist shouting Allahu Akbar stabbed two passengers to death in Saint Charles station around 2pm local time today in Marseille, south of France. He was then shot by security services afterwards.
After first reports came in about a knifeman and gunfire, police forces were quick to scramble to the scene. Locals were asked to stay away during the police operation which took some 30 minutes. At this moment the area of the station is still sealed off as police is looking for possible other terrorists.
French minister for the interior, Mr Gerard Collomb wrote on twitter that he was immediately making his way to Marseille.

There is no news as to the identity of the victims just yet.
If the name of Marseille train station rings a bell, that is because just two weeks ago 4 American students were thrown acid in their faces in that same train station.
The list of terror attacks in France has become excruciatingly long over the past few years.
