'Allahu Akbar' shouting woman injures two people in France

Woman shouting 'Allahu akbar' attacks 2 with box cutter at supermarket in France

The customer was stabbed in the upper chest or throat, but was said to be "out of danger".

"God is great" in Arabic - injured two people with a box cutter Sunday at a supermarket in southern France before she was detained. A store employee was hurt, but less seriously.

The woman, dressed in black, assaulted a customer at a supermarket in the town of La Seyne-sur-Mer in Var at around 10 a.m.

The prosecutor said: "We don't know whether this incident was a terrorist attack but it is terrifying because this man who was going about his business was attacked at a supermarket checkout till".

Witnesses said she shouted "Allahu Akbar" as she launched her attack, which they say appeared to start as a dispute between the woman and other customers.

The woman doesn't have a police record, officials confirmed.
