Man 'knifes French woman and her three daughters' in Alps resort

A French woman and her three young daughters were severely injured when they were stabbed at a holiday resort on Tuesday by a Moroccan-born man who reportedly shouted that they were too scantily dressed.

The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France.


The youngest girl, aged 8, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung, according to initial reports.


Her mother, 46, and sisters aged 12 and 14, are being treated at the hospital of Gap, closer to the scene of the attack. Their injuries are serious but not life-threatening, hospital sources said.

Initial reports claimed the man struck because he was angered by the women being "scantily dressed," but a local prosecutor has denied this.

How much of a ****ing monster do you have to be to stab 3 little girls - including an eight years old - with a knife and then go on and stab their mother?

There is nothing especially and unusually horrible about these crimes. They have been going on largely ignored for decades. Americans have been being his since the 1960s. Only the facts of the terror from other regions being performed in Europe is newish and the frequency. The latter is not yet as bad as in some other regions of the globe.

Took BBC quite a while to pick up on this.

According to authorities, the suspect in custody was of Moroccan origin and had been staying on the site with his own family next door to the victims.

Although he had been in trouble with police many years ago, reports said there was no indication of a religious link to the case.

Unconfirmed reports suggested he had objected to the light clothing worn by his victims but Mr Balland said "it's all rumour, the man's not said anything".

For France and Europe this is shocking as hell. I am guessing another mentally ill person as this is not normal.

Two Years of Terror: 278 Europeans have died
Two years of terror: 278 people have died in recent terror attacks in Europe - LA Times

So what would you attribute this acute outbreak of " mentally ill " people to ?

Maybe there's something in the water, or maybe its pesticides ? Because there's no way it could have any thing to do with the mass migration of Muslims into Europe, right ?

You do realize that is a tad over 3 days worth of Americans getting killed by guns right?

It is not acute. Some are terror attacks by "fully sane" people, others are attacks by manipulated insane people.. like the one in Nice.

Can be many reasons. The Nice attacker had a history of mental illness going back years. The Afghani from a couple of days ago.. most likely PTSD from his experiences in his home country. But regardless, the number of attacks in Europe are relatively few especially on a historical basis. The only real difference is that there have been some that have caused a lot of deaths and not the drip drip drip stuff that Americans experience every day.

It might easily be. Ghettos and camps are bad places to socialize underdog minorities. And they are explosive, if the fuse is lit.

Irrelevant.

Who manipulated the guy in Nice, and why are they insane? Just because they want people dead does not make them insane, it makes them evil.

The drip, drip, drip does not come from inspiration in a holy book touted to be the word of God. And historical basis is something that justifies these murders?

Why don't you just say that you are going to ignore Islam until it goes away? Good luck with that.

Eh? Who manipulated the guy in Nice? Come on.. who manipulated the Sandy Hooks terrorist? Who manipulated Loughner? Or Brevik? Yes people spewing bull**** hatred are evil, when those words are used by people to carry out terror.

Justifies murders? What on earth are you babbling about? All I pointed out is that Americans are use to murder and mayhem on their streets. There is a mass shooting somewhere in the US every day on average.. there are 91 people killed by guns every day in the US on average.. it has been drip drip for decades as it happens all the time. Now when it happens in Europe, a part of the world that does not see the same amount of violence.. then it is shocking and of course in the media.

Why don't you just say that you are going to ignore Islam until it goes away? Good luck with that.

I am not ignoring Islam, but I refuse to go after the 99% peaceful Muslims just because there are a few morons who ruin it for everyone.

And why are you ignoring the very clear racism and gun problem in the US?

This is, of course, old (2012) but shows a glimpse of the real world numbers:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism_in_India

I am not saying that 300 dead is not horrible. But in comparison it is not so many. And having listened to the nasty comments over the last years about the evil way the Americans reacted, it is interesting to see the behavior here.

Muslims have to be more careful than usual about waging jihad in India, because apparently, unlike many Westerners, Hindus do not wring their hands and worry about paying back Muslim violence--with interest. And there are more Hindus than Muslims in India. I remember reading, some years ago, about a fancy temple Hindus had built somewhere in northern India. Members of the Religion of Peace, showing their tolerance for other faiths, soon burned the thing down, or at least many Hindus thought they had. So, in a state clear across the country, hundreds of miles away, Hindus attacked a train full of Muslims and set fire to it, killing many of them. Rioting broke out in the area, with the local Muslims getting by far the worst of it. And it did not escape notice that the authorities in that predominantly Hindu country were unusually slow--they took several days--to send in forces to put down the riots.

The guy in Nice was manipulated and inspired by his faith. The others are irrelevant. And you are repeating yourself. The crimes in the US have nothing to do with Islamic attacks.

Also 99% of Muslims are not peaceful. That is quite enough of that lie. Real estimates range from 3% to 15% are radicalized. And a much larger percentage support the attacks financially or find the violence acceptable and justified by their faith.

And of course "racism"..............C'mon

two fairly upper middle income US citizens from San Bernardino became radicalized in our own back yard.

Sure enough...it is easy to enroll those with nothing. But its not necessary. Most of the terror attacks we have seen have not come from poor downtrodden and oppressed individuals.

Huh? Based on the reports about the Nice truck driver he didnt go to mosques and he drank and ate pork. How was he inspired by his faith if he wasn't religious. ISIS claimed he was one of them but they do that regardless of proof anyway.

Took BBC quite a while to pick up on this. ~

BBC have been really careful with a lot of stories in the last year. They seem happy to be half a day behind other sources just to make sure they are correct in their details because they can be complained against and held accountable. Other UK private media like ITV & online newspapers don't have public forums where everything they do is armchair quarterbacked or questioned.

Seems a corporate decision, you'll often see details emerging that has been in the public domain hours earlier on major breaking stories.

"Most of the islamist terror attacks we have seen have not come from poor downtrodden and oppressed individuals."

You seem to have a problem with your black community in your country. I'd also argue that it's easier for poorer muslims to walk to Europe than to find the cash for a flight to the US to claim asylum.

Whats with the mitigation ? Seriously, why are some people trying to minimize whats happened in France, Germany and Sweden ?

I would hate to think that they're putting their agenda before the lives and safety of innocent people. That perpetuating some upside down Leftist narrative is more important to them than recognizing a growing threat.

That would be irresponsible, callous and corrupt.

So....blacks are terrorists now? Is that where you are going with this?
See...that doesnt really pass the smell test. Europe has 'crime'. MOST of the violent incidents we have are 'crimes'. Terror attacks are rather different than 'crimes'. That doesnt downplay the violence nor does it eliminate as a contributing factor 'poverty'...but 'poverty' is not of necessity the cause of terrorist acts. The proof is found in who is committing those terrorist acts.

It's not like the all-American -style mass shooting like Breivik, is it?
