1 person killed, 6 wounded in French train station terror attack

One person was killed and six were wounded in a terror knife attack near a train station in Villeurbanne, France. Police have arrested one attacker.

The attack took place on Saturday afternoon at Laurent Bonnevay station in Villeurbanne, Metropolitan Lyon. Local media reported that two attackers allegedly attacked people in the parking lot at random, with several injuries reported, and one person killed.

One man has been arrested, with a manhunt ongoing for the second. Metro service was suspended as police descended on the scene.

Footage shared on social media purportedly shows a crowd of onlookers surrounding and subduing one of the suspects at one of the station’s elevators. Another man seen holding a long, thin object may also be a suspect, as one was reportedly armed with a kitchen skewer.
