In addition to asking to see the Minister of Justice, the armed man also asked for lawyer Omar Raddad, who was sentenced to 18 years in prison after the murder of Ghislaine Marchal 30 years ago, in 1991, as reported by BFM Paris.

Two women hostage by armed man in Paris

The incident where an armed man was holding two women hostage in a store has not been classified as a terrorist attack or terrorist activity, however, there was another situation that raised suspicions. This one alarmed the Paris authorities in the same way.

A man was seriously injured in a train station because the individual rushed at policemen in the middle of the railway station. Like the hostage incident, the subject was also armed with a knife, which he used to try to intimidate the officers who ended up shooting him.

After the hostage situation in the 12th district of Paris, another knife-wielding man unleashed terror at Saint Lazare station, northwest of the city. When police asked the subject to put on a mask, he refused and then immediately drew his weapon.

Unlike the situation in the store with the two hostages, this subject ran at the police to attack them. He identified himself as a radical Islamic fanatic, which is why the agents decided to open fire on him. Now he is hospitalized and in serious condition.
