Sep 12, 2018-

A man being held after a knife attack that injured seven people along a canal in Paris was not under the influence of drugs at the time, a legal source told AFP on Tuesday. The suspect, believed to be an Afghan citizen in his 30s, was described by witnesses as acting drugged when he began striking people with a knife and iron bar on the Canal de l’Ourcq late Sunday. Two British tourists and an Egyptian visitor were among those injured, and three people were still in hospital as of Monday evening, including one in critical condition, a source close to the inquiry said.
