France: knife, “Allahu Akbar”, threats, islamic garb. Probably not terrorism.

In Yvelines, near Paris, a man wearing islamic garb entered a hairdresser’s salon, yelling “Allahu akbar” and threatening to kill both employees and customers. After police arrived on the scene and apprehended him, they found the suspect was carrying a knife. A search of his home turned up documents and pamphlets about radical islam.

The man was already known to police. A psychiatrist has ordered treatment for the man, so odds are in a couple of days this will not be terrorism, but rather a confused or deranged individual.
