After the attack in Toulouse which left four injured on Sunday 3 May, the suspect has been identified. He is a 32 year old Sudanese asylum seeker according to information from regional daily La Dépêche du Midi. The alleged assailant was known to the justice system but was not the subject of an Fiche S listing. Fiche S is an indicator used by French law enforcement to flag an individual considered to be a serious threat to national security.
The attacker uttered cries to the glory of Allah. According to a source in La Dépêche du Midi, “he repeated Allah Akbar at least three times”.
On Sunday, May 3 in the early evening in downtown Toulouse, a man asked for a cigarette from two homeless women. When they refused, he got angry. The situation quickly deteriorated and other homeless people gathered at the scene, intervened. Blows were exchanged, and the assailant then brandished a kitchen knife.
The individual uttered cries to the glory of Allah as he proceeded to stab several people. In response, the homeless crowd struck the attacker with “multiple blows” and he was beaten to the ground. But he “managed to free himself by using his weapon again before fleeing,” according to the Dépêche du Midi.
The asylum seeker was arrested “almost instantly by municipal police patrol”. A total of four men were injured, including three seriously. One of them was stabbed in the carotid artery, another just below the ribs on his left side and the third sustained abdominal injuries. The fourth victim is in a “relative critical”, state according to SDIS 31.

BrusselsCountries in the EU are theoretically bound to the neutrality obligation in its use of tax revenues: The taxpayer's money must not be used for political purposes. But just as the German government wants to spend 1 billion euros in the next four years on the so-called “fight against the right”, the EU is funding a network of “civil society” NGOs that represent clearly left-wing politics, actively combatting conservative politicians and their parties – Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orban are but two examples.
MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.
