Two suspects in connection with a knife assault that injured four people earlier Friday near the former offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo have been arrested, reported local media.
France’s National Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor’s Office announced an investigation was opened for “attempted assassination in connection with a terrorist enterprise.”
In January 2015, a terrorist attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo left 12 people killed. In the following days, a policewoman was shot dead and there was also an attack on a Jewish supermarket. The main perpetrators of these shootings had been killed in police raids.
Earlier this September, a trial of 14 suspects charged in connection with these attacks has begun in Paris.
