"Selon une source policière, plusieurs témoins l'ont entendu crier «Allah akbar» alors qu'il tentait d'agresser un policier à l'accueil. L'assaillant était armé d'un couteau et d'un dispositif pouvant être un gilet explosif. Son identité reste à confirmer."

"According to a police source, several witnesses heard him cry, "Allahu Akhbar" as he tried to attack a policeman in the reception area. The assailant was armed with a knife and what may have been an exploding device around his waist. His identity remains to be confirmed."

According to Fox News, his name was Sallah Ali. He also had a piece of paper indicating that ISIS was responsible for the attack.
