French Soldier Slightly Injured in Train Station Attack

Sunday, 24 April 2016 04:29 PM

PARIS (AP) — French police say they are looking for a man who attacked a soldier with a box cutter in the eastern city of Strasbourg.

Local government official Dominique Jane told Europe 1 radio the incident happened in Strasbourg's train station on Saturday evening. Jane said Sunday that the soldiers pushed back the aggressor, who managed to escape, as he was trying to attack one of them. One soldier was slightly injured on a cheek.

The man's motives remained unclear. Jane said the attacker spoke in Arabic, but he doesn't know the content and translation of his words.

The soldiers were patrolling the station as part of an ongoing operation in France to support police following the 2015 attacks in Paris.
