I don't understand; even when he boxed, he felt sorry for people.


That day, Naïm B., 18, accompanied them. It was through his contact in a gym that Abdoullakh would have radicalized, assured the Anzorov family to investigators, according to Le Parisien. In the months preceding the attack, the killer regularly attended the Fitness Park, located in a commercial area at the entrance to Évreux. Souleiman met him there: "I don't understand; even when he was boxing, he felt sorry for people."

Yet Anzorov is described by many as violent. By his neighbors who were "afraid of him" and even by an "old man" of the Chechen community who had advised him "to stop looking for a fight". At the end of September, during the funeral of a 27-year-old Chechen killed in a bar in Évreux, Anzorov also fought with a faithful in front of the Franco-Turkish mosque of Fauville, located near the Fitness Park. His opponent suspected him of wanting to wage jihad. The investigation carried out by the national anti-terrorism prosecutor's office showed that the process of radicalization of the killer had begun several months ago: no more music or alcohol, a photo of the Daesh flag as a wallpaper on his phone portable.

The Chechen community fears stigmatization

However, Shamil Albakov, spokesperson for the Association of Chechens of Europe, describes a discreet Anzorov family, so far without history and not very active within the community. The father works in security, the mother takes care of her children and does housework from time to time. As for the grandfather, he owned several construction companies, before his flight from Russia in 2008. A graduate in economics there, he did not find an equivalent job when he arrived in France and found himself, like many exiled Chechens, to work in security.

A week after the attack, the small community feared stigmatization. "I hope that the investigation will show the problem of radicalization by social networks, advance Heda Inderbaeva, specialist in Chechnya. It is possible in every family, not only among Chechens." Words that echo the speech of the Imam of Évreux: "The only answer to barbarism is to be united among all of us citizens."
