France pays tribute to murdered police couple

France in mourning

Memorials have been held across France, in tribute to the two police officials murdered in a western suburb of Paris on Monday.

French President Francois Hollande and his ministers stand in silent tribute to the two police officials murdered this week.

Police commander Jean-Baptiste Salvaing and his partner, Jessica Schneider, were stabbed to death at their home in a western suburb of Paris on Monday.

A three-year-old child, thought to be their son, survived the attack.

How it happened

42-year-old Mr Salvaing died from stab wounds outside his home in the suburb of Magnanville on Monday evening.

The body of 36-year-old Ms Schneider was found inside after police raided the address following a hostage-taking.

The child was discovered shocked but unharmed.

Larossi Abballa

Police say the attacker was 25-year-old Larossi Abballa.

It is claimed he pledged allegiance to ISIL during conversations with police negotiators.

“More attacks likely” – Valls

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has warned it is likely there will be more terror attacks in France.

“Other innocent people will die. This is a very unpleasant thing to say. People can accuse me, and I completely understand, of making society even more fearful than it is already, given what has happened. But unfortunately, this is the reality. It will take a generation,” Valls said, speaking on French radio (in French).

Has anyone been arrested in connection with the attack?

Yes.

Police have raided several addresses in connection with events in Magnanville on Monday.

Officials say three people have been taken in for questioning.
