The suspect “is clearly not someone radicalized”, according to the Minister of the Interior. “When you are used to Islamist attacks, you necessarily have a bias”, acknowledged Gérald Darmanin, Friday, after being questioned about the profile of the arrested man. The Minister of the Interior explained, on the set of BFMTV, that the alleged perpetrator was not “obviously not someone radicalized”. Important information, underlined the tenant of Place Beauvau, since it can imply that there is “no coordination with other attacks”.
