France: Hostage situation at supermarket in Trèbes

Recommended Posts

TMT got there already. I'm going to predict that this will prove to be very bad - the So-Called BBC seem to have got in on the act early, which is usually not a positive sign.

Carcassonne is just next to Castelnaudary where the Foreign Legion's main training base is. 

Shot jogging copper was CRS

Seems to be an area where lots of training takes place for police and military.

 

Sounds like one gunman got dropped at the supermarket and the other drove off shooting from the car.

RT reporting a van has tried to run down/shoot police in Marseille  not connected apparently

TBH, that was part & parcel of living in Marseilles even 40 years ago when I went there on a school exchange.

Is Carcasonne a dump?  I was going to to that area a couple of years ago, looked quite nice from the photos. Didn't look that enriched.

I think it is quite nice and a used as a training area for legion and paramilitary police units. 

It's probably proper french townlike

What did the butcher do - have a special on bacon & pork sausages? I mean, why target the butcher?

AFP has reported that ISIS took responsibility for the attack but the weakened terror group often does this as a propaganda tool, even when it is not associated with an incident.

We were told ISIS had been defeated.  That must only be in part of Syria.
