IS-linked radical in French cop stabbing had ‘hit list’


MAGNANVILLE, France: A convicted radical who killed a French police couple in an IS-inspired stabbing was carrying a “hit list” of VIPs and urged followers to turn Euro 2016 into a “graveyard,” officials said. Monday’s assault in the Paris suburb of Magnanville was the first deadly strike in France since the coordinated attacks in the capital by an Islamic State cell in November, which killed 130 people. The killings also took place barely 36 hours after the massacre at a gay club in Orlando by an IS-inspired gunman, and French President Francois Hollande spoke by telephone with his US counterpart Barack Obama to discuss the terror threat.
