TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A man was taken into custody after attacking a guard stationed at the French Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Press Agency reported on Thursday that police had detained a man who used a “sharp object” to assault the guard, who sustained “minor injuries.” France’s diplomatic mission in Saudi Arabia issued a statement confirming the attack.
The incident comes just hours after three people were killed in a suspected terrorist attack near a church in the Notre-Dame area of Nice, France.
Also, French media reported that a knife-wielding man was killed after attempting to attack police in the city of Avignon.
