Strasbourg Shooting: 2 Killed, 14 Injured in Islamist Attack on Christmas Market in France

Two people have been killed and 14 others injured in a shooting incident in the northeastern French city of Strasbourg, near one of the oldest and biggest Christmas markets in Europe.

The suspect had engaged police in a shootout before fleeing the scene and is still on the run. The attack took place at a Christmas market at Kleber Square, a UNESCO world heritage site located in Strasbourg’s old city.

The French Interior Ministry urged the public to remain indoors amid what it called a “serious security event” in the city. A video posted on social media shows people injured in the shooting lying on the street.

Following the incident, the city was put on lockdown. As a precaution, the European Parliament building was also closed. The local media reported that public transport was not working.
