Liveblog: The deadly stabbling of a senior police officer and his partner in a Paris suburb is “unquestionably a terrorist act”, French President François Hollande has said.

Sources close to the investigation named the suspect as 25-year-old Larossi Abballa, adding that he had been sentenced in 2013 for links to a jihadist network that sent recruits to Pakistan.

Any terrorist offense must be settled by either deportation or execution, and preferably both.
