Two killed and others wounded in France knife attack

Two people have been killed and at least four others wounded in a knife attack in south-east France, officials have said.

Initial reports said the attacker entered a tobacconist in the town of Romans-sur-Isère, near Grenoble, and stabbed the owners and a customer.

He then went to a nearby butcher's shop and attacked more people.

Police said a suspect had been arrested. The motive for the attack is not clear.

One of the wounded is said to be in a critical condition.

France is currently in lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. People are only allowed out to buy basic necessities or for exercise.
