French president says suspect killed 3, injured 16

More than 240 people have been killed in France in attacks since 2015 by assailants who pledged allegiance to Islamic State or were inspired by the group.

Macron added detectives will also try to find out how and when Redouane Lakdim got radicalized.

Mrs May briefed other European Union leaders on the probe into the Salisbury attack over a summit dinner on Thursday (March 22).

'Every day we detect facts and foil new attacks.

In Brussels, German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared with Macron and said, "When it comes to terrorist threats, we stand by France".

Even the Palace of Versailles, one of France's top tourist attractions, was closed Thursday because workers there went on strike. "We want to provide a different offer, advocating quality of service and lower prices", says Thello's marketing and sales director Mr Fabrice Toledano, who describes the opening of the French market as "a great opportunity". "He was known for possession of drugs".

A security source said the two were killed in the attack at a Super U store in the town of Trebes.

Earlier on Thursday, May told reporters upon her arrival at the summit that "Russia staged a brazen and reckless attack against the United Kingdom when it attempted the murder of two people on the streets of Salisbury".

France also suffered major attacks in Paris in November 2015 when IS jihadists killed 130 people in bombings and shootings at bars, restaurants, the Bataclan concert venue and the national stadium.

Forecast snow increased to 2-4 inches
Late Wednesday into early Thursday morning the sky will begin to clear and we will only have a few lingering flurries. Afternoon temperatures are in the upper 40s, falling well short of the lower 50s we should see this time of the year.

Media reported that the suspect was of Morocco origin and was previously known to the French security services.

Officers in Nantes also fired tear gas and water cannons at protestors in more furious scenes.

"This is a small, quiet, town".

Witnesses said about 20 people in the supermarket found refuge in its cold storage room.

French President Emmanuel Macron popularity has fallen to its lowest point so far in his presidency, a poll showed on Friday.

A police lieutenant-colonel swapped himself in exchange for one of the hostages, Collomb said, adding that the 45-year-old had been seriously wounded. "I was in my department when I heard gunshots". "I went to see what was happening and I saw a man lying on the floor and another person, very agitated, who had a gun in one hand and a knife in the other". After that, my colleagues came toward me saying: 'Come on Jacky, we need to leave, there's someone who's firing shots, he's shouting "Allahu akbar", and he's shot people and he's shooting at everything.' We have an emergency exit behind the butcher's stall and we ran away across the courtyard. "If we do nothing, the government will not back down".

If the link to Islamic State is confirmed, the hostage-taking would be the first deadly attack in France since October, when two young women were stabbed to death outside Marseille's main train station.

In January 21015, shopworker Lassana Bathily ushered panicked shoppers into a cold storage room at the Parisian kosher deli when an Islamist militant killed four Jewish hostages.
