They’re ALWAYS claiming responsibility, but what’s really to blame is:

- Reports claim he was heard shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ before stabbing passengers
- Both of assailant’s victims were women, one of whom was left ‘with a sliced neck’
- Anti-terror police patrolling inside the station responded and shot attacker dead

ISIS have claimed responsibility for a terror attack which saw a man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ stab two women to death with a butcher’s knife in Marseille.
The victims, aged 17 and 20, suffered horrific injuries during the ‘frenzied’ attack, with one slashed in the throat and the other stabbed in the chest and stomach.
Eyewitnesses told how a man ‘dressed in black’ launched himself at the two women, who screamed for their lives as others ran for safety.
The assailant was gunned down by soldiers who were on patrol inside Saint Charles train station at the time as part of France‘s ongoing state of emergency.
The suspect, thought to be aged 25 to 30, was known to authorities for common law crimes while analysis of his fingerprints came up with several aliases.
Anti-terror officials said they were investigating ‘links to a terrorist organisation’ and the ‘attempted killing of a public official’, the identity of which is currently unknown.
Photographs from the scene showed a woman lying on the ground and armed police standing over the attacker. A white sheet was later placed over his body.
