VTV.vn - The knife-wielding attacker who went on a stabbing rampage in Paris on Saturday night, killing one person and wounding four more, was born in Russia's Chechnya region in 1997.

According to a judicial source, he was on a police anti-terror watch list of people suspected of having radicalized views and posing a potential security risk, though had no criminal record.

At a special security meeting, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said that if the French security forces did not respond in time, the casualties could be even greater. He also warned that similar attacks could happen anywhere in France and the threat of terrorism in the country remains high.
