French authorities are searching for links between the stabbing of a soldier outside Paris and the brutal killing of Drummer Lee Rigby by suspected Islamic extremists.
The French soldier was stabbed in the throat yesterday in the busy La Defense shopping area near the capital. The 23-year-old’s injury is not life-threatening, the Interior Ministry said. His attacker is still on the run.
President Francois Hollande said the identity of the attacker was unknown, and warned against jumping to conclusions about the assault .
