One more family carried out an attack at a police station – four people on 2 motorbikes drove into the main gateway of the building before detonating explosives.

“These attacks are the nightmare scenario that’s been anticipated since Indonesians affiliated with ISIS have returned from the Middle East,” said Greg Barton, Chair in Global Islamic Politics at Deakin University in Australia.

At least 11 people died and 41 were wounded in these suicide attacks.

Khamzat Azimov, 21, the suspect who killed one victim and injured 4 people with a knife in Paris on Saturday, Business Insider reports. French police shot him dead and gathered his parents and friend for questioning.

The IS group claimed responsibility for the knife attack. Also, it’s reported Azimov had been on a watchlist of the radicals since 2016.

“At this stage, based on the one hand on the account of witnesses who said the attacker cried ‘Allahu akbar’ (God is great in Arabic) while attacking passersby with a knife, and given the modus operandi, we have turned this over to the counterterrorist section of the Paris prosecutor’s office,” Molins, the prosecutor, stated.
