    BREAKING: Masked Men Open Fire On Crowd In France With AK-47s, Report Says

    An unknown number of masked gunmen opened fire on a crowd of people in France on Monday using AK-47s, according to reports from local media.

    The Daily Mail reports:

    A group of masked attackers in three cars fired AK-47 assault rifles at young people in the French city of Marseille this evening, local media has reported.

    One man is said to be 'slightly injured' after the assault, which began at about 5pm and which included the use of handguns.

    The gunmen began firing at a crowd of young people outside the city's cultural centre.

    The attack is another narrative fail for the political Left as France has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world, The Washington Post reports:

    French gun laws date back to April 18, 1939, though they have been amended a number of times since. They are certainly tough: There is no right to bear arms for the French, and to own a gun, you need a hunting or sporting license which needs to be repeatedly renewed and requires a psychological evaluation.

    The attack comes just days after French authorities foiled a terrorist attack plotted by a man of Egyptian origin, who allegedly was planning some sort of attack involving explosives and ricin, which is a deadly poison. The foiled terrorist attack came just as the Islamic holiday Ramadan kicked off last week.

    Paris Attack Leaves 1 Dead and 4 Wounded by Knife-Wielding Terrorist

    PARIS — A man armed with a knife attacked five people in a neighborhood near the Paris Opera, according to the French police, killing one and wounding four, two of them seriously.

    Hours later, the Islamic State claimed responsibility, describing the attacker as a “soldier of the Islamic State.” President Emmanuel Macron called the assailant, who was killed by the police, a “terrorist.”

    The Paris prosecutor’s office, which handles all terrorism cases, is taking over the investigation. The prosecutor, François Molins, gave a brief news conference near the scene of the attack. He confirmed that the attacker, whose name has not yet been released, had shouted “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is Great,” during the assault.

    On Sunday morning, a French judicial official said that the suspect had been a naturalized French citizen who was born in 1997 in the Russian republic of Chechnya, and that his parents had been taken into custody for questioning.

    The attack happened about 600 yards from the Palais Garnier, the home of the Paris Opera, on the right bank of the Seine, an area popular with both tourists and Parisians, especially on a Saturday night when the bars and restaurants there are often full until the early morning hours.

    A waiter, Amine Belkacem, 50, who was serving diners in a Moroccan restaurant, said he saw young people running away from the scene. He asked them what was going on, and they told him they had heard shots and fled.
