„These are relatives of the aggressor. We try to understand the author’s motivation “, said an official from the commission of inquiry.
The investigation is currently being coordinated by the Grasse Package. The national anti-terrorist prosecutor’s office has not been notified yet.
Four police officers were attacked on Monday in the French city of Cannes by an individual armed with a knife. To repel the attack, police fired four shots at the assailant, a 37-year-old Algerian man. The aggressor remains in critical condition, so he could not be questioned.
The French authorities are examining all the hypotheses in the case of this attack, including the possibility of a terrorist act. At the time of the attack, the aggressor uttered words specific to Islamist terrorism. Investigators are trying to find out the reason for the attack.
„The perpetrator of the attack was not in the records of the police at all“said the French Interior Minister, Gérald Darmanin. The Algerian citizen had applied for a residence permit in France a few years ago, but was refused.
