So far no indication of the suspect’s motives… “Moussa Koulibally” is being bandied about as the suspects name.
Three soldiers are stabbed while on anti-terror patrol at French Jewish community centre – and attacker has same surname as kosher deli killer
The attacker, who was carrying an ID card with the name Moussa Coulibaly, was detained after the attack, near the Galeries Lafayette department store, Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said.
The surname, which is relatively common for families of Malian descent, is the same as that of the Amedy Coulibaly, who took hostages in a kosher supermarket in Paris and gunned down a policewoman last month.
