French media reported that a woman crying “Allahu akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic — hurt two people with a box cutter at a supermarket in southern France on Sunday.

A man was struck in the chest during the late-morning attack in La Seyne-sur-Mer, outside the Mediterranean port of Toulon, but the wound is not life-threatening, prosecutor Bernard Marchal told AFP.

A woman working at a checkout counter was also wounded, though not as seriously. Both victims were taken to a hospital.

“It appears to be an isolated case by a person with known psychological problems,” Marchal said, “though that doesn’t exclude the possibility that she may have been radicalized. 

Marchal added: ‘There is presumption of attempted murder, and apology for crime with a terrorist connotation. We do not know yet if these facts are terrorists but they are in any case terrorising, because this man who had not asked anything was attacked at the cash desk of a supermarket.’

The 24-year-old assailant, who did not have a police record, was overpowered by others in the supermarket and has been taken into custody. Police later searched her home to determine if she had any links to the Islamic State group.

    Don’t you see? She’s either a psycho or she’s been “radicalized.” The possibility that she is a devout, pious Muslim acting on the texts, tenets, and teachings of mainstream, orthodox Islam is not even considered and is dismissed out of hand.
