France has suffered a series of major Islamist attacks including the massacre at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, followed 10 months later by the killing spree in Paris that claimed 130 lives.

The perpetrator, a 20-year old man of Chechen descent named Khamzat Azimov who became a French citizen in 2010, was shot dead by police.

"Based on testimony of eyewitnesses who said they heard the attacker saying '[Allahu] Akbar' and because of the method of the attack it's the anti-terror unit who is in charge of the investigation", he said.

Police on Sunday scoured the background of a Chechnya-born Frenchman who killed a man in a knife attack in Paris, questioning the parents and a friend of the 21-year old, who had been flagged previously as a potential security risk. The alleged assailant was shot by the police and was pronounced dead. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. The AP reported the attacker's parents are in custody as well.

Foreign Minister of France Jean-Yves Le Drian called unacceptable the position of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, who gave the government of this country responsible for the attack may 12 ethnic Chechen Hassan Asimov. In addition to the person who died, two others were seriously injured and were transferred to George Pompidou Hospital, he added.
