Police: French attack had terrorist past

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Police in France say the man who attacked and killed two police officials outside Paris had a past conviction for terrorism, tied to the Pakistan jihad.

Last night, a knife-wielding attacker stabbed an off-duty senior police officer and his partner, a woman police official.

The couple's 3-year-old son was unharmed, and the attacker, identified as 25-year-old Larossi Abbala, was killed in a police raid.
