Most news sources now say that the murderer killed two women. There is an eye witness account reported in The Telegraph
One of the women killed had her throat cut and the other was stabbed, a police source said.
Dominique, a tearful witness, described how the attacker grabbed one of his victims from behind and slit her throat. “She couldn’t have seen a thing,” she told CNews television.
“She was lying in a poll blood as I ran away,” she said. “I heard two shots fired. It must have been the soldiers."
A police source said it was probably a “terrorist attack” and anti-terrorism prosecutors have taken charge of the investigation. After reviewing CCTV footage of the attack, the authorities decided to treat it as a terrorist incident. An interior ministry spokesman said: “Anti-terrorist prosecutors have opened an investigation and the terrorist theory is the most likely.”
A police source said the assailant was armed with “at least two knives”. After attacking the women, he lunged at soldiers patrolling the station, who opened fire. He died a few minutes later.
