In France: Teen Slasher Invokes ISIS and More

Teen slasher of Jewish teacher in France cites Islamic State

PARIS (AP) -- A teenager armed with a machete slashed a Jewish teacher in a Marseille street on Monday, invoking the Islamic State group and saying he had also planned to go after police, a French prosecutor said.

The 15-year-old Turkish Kurd was arrested soon after wordlessly attacking the teacher, who was injured in the attack in central Marseille, said Brice Robin, the Marseille prosecutor. The teen invoked Allah and the extremist group only after he was detained, saying "the Muslims of France dishonor Islam and the French army protects Jews."
