PARIS—A schoolteacher in suburban Paris was stabbed on Monday morning by a masked man invoking Islamic State, French police said.
The attacker, dressed all in white with his face concealed, entered a school located in the north suburb of Aubervilliers on Monday morning. Police said the aggressor declared the stabbing was in the name of Islamic State and that the attack was “just the beginning.”
The suspect remains at large, police said, adding that the teacher’s life isn’t in danger.
The Paris prosecutor’s office opened an investigation and is treating the matter as a terrorist case, a spokeswoman said.
The stabbing took place just one month after the Nov. 13 wave of violent attacks shocked Paris and killed 130 people.
