A French soldier patrolling a business neighborhood west of Paris was stabbed in the neck and injured on Saturday by a man who fled the scene and is being sought by police, President Francois Hollande said.
The 23-year-old was patrolling in uniform with two other soldiers as part of France's Vigipirate anti-terror surveillance plan when he was approached from behind around 6 p.m. and attacked with a knife or a box-cutter.
A police union spokesman said surveillance footage of the attacker showed him as tall and bearded, aged about 35, possibly of North African origin and wearing a white Arab-style tunic.
Hollande, in the Ethiopian city of Addis Ababa, commented on the stabbing to say police were hunting for the attacker but did not provide any details about his identity or any possible motivation for the attack.
"We still don't know the exact circumstances of the attack or the identity of the attacker, but we are exploring all options," Hollande told journalists.
Three days after a British soldier was killed in a London street by two men who said they acted to avenge violence against Muslims, the attack near Paris raised questions about a possible copycat attempt to kill a French soldier.
Interior Minister Manuel Valls noted the similarity in an interview on France 2 TV saying the attacker was clearly trying to murder his victim, but he added that it was too early to offer any theories.
"Let's be prudent for now," Valls said of the attacker's identity and motivations. "Everything is being done to arrest this individual."

“Any mob of Islamist b.....s torching cars where I live would most likely find themselves riddled with bullets in very short order. Where I live, even most Democrats have guns.”
That’s because you haven’t been cowed yet by political correctness. You likely don’t care if some purse-carrying, mascara-wearing metrosexual wimp calls you a name. In fact, if a liberal puke got in your face, you’d probably stomp his nuts into the concrete.
Pleased to make your acquaintance, driftless2.
Gun Free because of Clinton.
A lot of Turkish immigrants in Kruatland.
America has become wimpified. We are a nation that fears to be called a racist worse than being murdered. In time we will wake up but how many must die until then?
"A category mistake, or category error, is a semantic or ontological error in which "things of one kind are presented as if they belonged to another", or, alternatively, a property is ascribed to a thing that could not possibly have that property." [...] The first example is of a visitor to Oxford. The visitor, upon viewing the colleges and library, reportedly inquired But where is the University?" The visitor's mistake is presuming that a University is part of the category "units of physical infrastructure" or some such thing, rather than the category "institutions", say, which are far more abstract and complex conglomerations of buildings, people, procedures, and so on."
In this case, and in many other, politically myopic investigators are scrutinizing actions of every single jihadi, be it Nidal Malik Hassan, or Beltway Snipers, or London Butchers, or this one, without even trying to understand that they are all soldiers of a larger army, and that they are all sicced upon infidels by mullahs in mosques. All these jihadis are expendable material, and their individual tactics will be all over the place.
If a problem is incorrectly defined it becomes unsolvable. You cannot treat symptoms, you have to treat the disease - but for that you need to understand that high temperature or running nose are just outward signs of a virus in your body.
I think politicians are just afraid to deal with the real problem. I am not even sure it can be dealt with democratically - not any more than two wolves and a sheep democratically deciding what's for dinner.
NO, Sick, multiculturalist, brain dead, dhimmituded, leftist, liberals DESERVE their fate. WE DON’T.
There are a few million muslims in Germany, mainly Turkish, but also many other nationalities.
I honestly don’t know if he did play for Germany in the Olympics, but I know he’s played for the “national team”. If that means World Cup or Olympics, or both, I don’t know.
Not happening here YET only because so many of us carry and they know they would be shot dead on the spot.
If we were disarmed it would be happening all over our streets too.
Yes, since shortly after the end of the war, to quite a while thereafter, what was then West Germany imported numerous 'gastarbeiteren', or 'guest-workers' to alleviate manpower shortages. These primarily came from Turkey...
I had pictures taken with a couple of these French soldiers near the tower a few years back. They looked like a couple of kids to me. They were not bothering anyone.
But there were people in Islamic garb all around the tower and at the train station approaching people for money.
Germany has a lot of Turks, who were imported as cheap labor. UK has the Pakistanis, France and Spain have the N Africans, Holland has the Indonesians, and so on.
“Obama called the IM and told him not to jump to conclusions.” >sarc
A case can be made that the French need no outside pressure to exercise their “Inner Coward.”
As an example, French surplus rifles are advertised as “never used, dropped once”.
Perhaps there is a reason French military pants are - - - brown?
“There may be up to five million Muslims in Germany.”
IIRC, Germany once rid its self of well over six million people.
Were I a Muslim, Germany is the last country I would anger.
Just reminding, that’s all.
