Muslim man with knife on the Paris metro: ‘I’m Muslim, I’ll kill all the Catholics’

On 14 July, France’s national holiday, a Muslim man caused panic on the Paris metro, newspaper Le Parisien reports.
Shortly before 1 pm on Saturday at Anvers station, a passenger suddenly showed a knife on the platform and began to scream: “I’m Muslim, I’ll kill all the Catholics.”
His threats caused great panic but fortunately for the passengers of a nearby carriage, the man was overpowered and arrested by police before he could attack anyone.
The attacker was placed in police custody in Paris and was identified as 23-year-old Egyptian, Emad F.
He is not documented in the Police District Intelligence Directorate. However, he is known to the courts for two common law convictions.
