Turkish teenager stabs Jewish teacher in Marseille
A Turkish teenager who stabbed a Jewish teacher with a machete on Monday in the southern French city of Marseille told police he had acted in the name of the Islamic State group, a prosecutor said.
The attack, which left the 35-year-old teacher with an injured shoulder and hand, occurred in broad daylight in the south of the city, prosecutor Brice Robin said.
The 15-year-old ethnic Kurd assailant rushed the victim from behind and stabbed him in the shoulder, then chased after him for a few metres (yards) until he fell, Robin said.
