25 Year Old Larossi Abballa, who claimed allegiance to ISIS, stabbed to death a police captain and his companion on Monday had been sentenced to prison in 2013 for membership in a group that was planning terrorist activities.

President Francois Hollande called the murder of two police officials by a man claiming allegiance to so-called Islamic State (IS) is “unquestionably a terrorist act”.
A man who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group stabbed a senior French police officer to death on Monday night before he was killed in a dramatic police operation, officials have said.
The attacker repeatedly stabbed the officer before taking the officer’s partner and their son hostage in their home in Magnanville, near Paris.
He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed. The partner was found dead but the child was rescued.
French President François Hollande said Tuesday the murders were “unquestionably a terrorist act”.
Sources close to the investigation named the suspect as 25-year-old Larossi Abballa, adding that he had been sentenced in 2013 for links to a jihadist network that sent recruits to Pakistan.
A news agency linked to the IS group said the attack had been carried out by an “Islamic State fighter”, days after posting a similar claim following the massacre at a gay club in Orlando, Florida.
