VALENCE, France: A 29-year-old man who tried to run down soldiers guarding a French mosque said he wanted to kill them and be killed himself “to appear like a martyr,” a prosecutor said on Saturday. Investigators also found “jihadist propaganda images” on a computer at the man’s home, and the assailant reportedly said the words “Allah is great” during the attack, prosecutor Alex Perrin said. The jihadist images that were discovered however “can be accessed by anyone using the Internet,” Perrin told AFP, refusing to give further details.
