The suspect  is due to be interrogated by Paris prosecutors supported by judicial police. He will be charged  with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. In October two young women were stabbed to death outside Marseille’s main train station in a terrorist attack. France remained on high alert following other attempts by knifemen to strike in Paris, including one in Paris exactly a year ago when an Egyptian national rushed at soldiers guarding the Louvre museum.
