It was via Twitter that Emmanuel Macron paid tribute to Stéphanie, a 49-year-old administrative agent, killed with knives in the Rambouillet police station (Yvelines), early Friday afternoon. Traveling to Chad for the funeral of Idriss Déby, the Head of State declared that “the Nation is alongside his family, his colleagues and the police”.
He also spoke of “the bruised lands of Yvelines” where previous terrorist attacks – a couple of police officers killed in Magnanville, the assassination of Samuel Paty – took place.
She was a police officer. Stéphanie was killed in her Rambouillet police station, on the already damaged land of Yvelines. The Nation is at the side of his family, his colleagues and the police. In the fight against Islamist terrorism, we will not give up.

Prime Minister Jean Castex and Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin went to Rambouillet after this attack, for which the national anti-terrorism prosecution took action. The head of government affirmed: “Our determination to fight terrorism in all its forms is more than ever intact. “
