A Frenchman once convicted of recruiting jihadi fighters  recorded and posted an attack on Facebook Live, how he stabbed a police commander to death outside his suburban Paris home, French officials said Tuesday. After a three hour standoff with police, the attacker and the police commander's partner were found dead inside their.
The couple’s 3-year-old was in the house in Magnanville, about 35 miles west of Paris, but was unharmed. A police official said that at one point in the video, the attacker puzzled over what to do with the child.
The Islamic State group’s Amaq news agency cited an unnamed source as saying an ISIS fighter carried out the attack late Monday. While the extremist group has not officially claimed responsibility, French President François Hollande said it was “incontestably a terrorist act” and that France faces a threat “of a very large scale.”
Two people close to the attacker were detained, authorities said. They gave no details about them. (AP)
