Paris stabbing: Multiple people injured

Three people have been stabbed in a knife attack at Paris' main train station Saturday morning.

Police rushed to the Gare de Lyon railway station after the suspected attacker went on a stabbing spree at around 8am on the morning of the 3rd February.

None of those stabbed are thought to be in a life threatening condition.

One of the victims is thought to have been seriously injured, while another two people have minor injuries.

Police say they have since arrested the suspected assailant but given no further information. 

The motive of the attack is not immediately clear.

“One person was seriously hurt, and two lightly wounded,’ a police spokesperson said.

“Officers arrived on the scene within minutes and the man was arrested.

“He was found to have an Italian driving licence on him, and did not offer any motive for his actions. There were no slogans shouted.”

Paris' Gare de Lyon station connects trains across France but is also used for international travel, servicing routes to Switzerland and Italy, as well as the Eurostar.

As many as 150 million passengers use the station a year.

Yesterday's incident comes after a number of knife attacks in the French capital in recent months.

In December, a tourist died and another two were injured, after an attack near the Eiffel Tower.

And in January 2023, six people were injured after a stabbing at Paris's international Gare du Nord station.
