Terrorism charges filed in stabbings near Charlie Hebdo office

Sep 30, 2020 18:36 IST

A Pakistani man accused in a double stabbing outside the former Charlie Hebdo office in Paris has been handed preliminary terrorism charges. France's counter-terrorism prosecutor's office on Wednesday said Zaher Hassan Mahmood told investigators that he acted out of anger over the weekly newspaper which recently republished the controversial Prophet Muhammad caricature. The prosecutor said that the 25-year-old did not claim an affiliation with a specific extremist group. Last week, 2 people were severely wounded after they were stabbed near the previous office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
