A horrific incident occurred in France when a teacher was stabbed to death, and two others severely injured.

A knife-wielding attacker launched an assault at City School Gambetta-Carnot in Arras, northern France.

The assailant, who has been identified as Mohammed Mogouchkov, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the attack. The suspect, a 20-year-old former pupil of the school with Chechen origins, had been previously flagged by authorities and placed on a terror watch list, as reported by the Telegraph.

This tragic event unfolded on Friday morning, prompting a swift response from the police. Dominique Bernard, a French literature teacher, tragically lost his life, while a sports teacher and a security guard were injured. No students were harmed during the attack. The suspect’s brother was also apprehended near another school, although no weapon was found in his possession, according to reports from the France news outlet Le Figaro.
