Three soldiers on an anti-terror patrol in the southern French city of Nice were attacked by a man with a knife Tuesday, a French police union official said. Sarah Baron said the extent of the soldiers’ injuries is not yet clear. She said the attacker was detained but two people with him are
believed to have fled after the stabbing in the city center, near the Galeries Lafayette department store. France has been on high alert since the attacks in the Paris region by three Islamic extremists that left 20 people dead, including the gunmen. More than 10,000 soldiers have been deployed around the country to protect sensitive locations, including major shopping areas, synagogues, mosques and transit hubs.
