From the Telegraph

A suspected Islamist who stabbed to death a police commander and his wife in France claimed he was following Isil’s call for lone wolf attacks during Ramadan, in a video posted online after the killing.

Larossi Abballa, a 25-year-old known to French security services, pledged allegiance to the leader of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) in a 13-minute live broadcast on his Facebook account before warning that Euro 2016 would become a “graveyard”.

Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, an Isil spokesman, last month released an audio recording in which he told followers in Europe and the US to rise up and carry out attacks in its name during the holy month. 

They found three phones and three knives, including one covered in blood on the table. In his nearby car, they found a Koran, a white djellaba, and two books – one called “genuine belief” and another “explanation of the three foundations”. 

The video, posted on his Facebook account as police surrounded the couple’s house, reportedly showed the suspect next to his victims,according to French radio station RFI. The couple’s son can be seen in the background. “I don’t know what to do with it,” the suspect is heard saying of the boy. 

Abballa then calls for more attacks in France, particularly against the Euro 2016 stadiums and a list of police officers, prison guards, and journalists he names. 

He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed. Jérôme Bonet, police spokesman…(said) “The negotiation was brief because we were facing an individual who had absolutely no intention of negotiating,” 

A list of targets was found after the attack, which took place between 8pm and 8.20pm, and included the names of people and professions “rappers, journalists, police and public figures”.

Three men aged 27, 29 and 44 are currently detained for questioning.
