2 young French women stabbed to death in Marseille, France

A knifeman shouting Allahu Akbar is alleged to have slit one
woman's throat and stabbed another in the stomach during a deadly
rampage at a train station in France. Two people were killed in the suspected terror attack before the assailant was shot dead by cops at the Gare de Marseille-Saint-Charles.

Early images from the scene show a woman lying on the ground while armed soldiers tower over a man nearby.

It is unclear whether the man pictured is the assailant.

The Paris prosecutors' office said a counter-terrorism investigation has been opened.
