The French embassy in Saudi Arabia condemned the attack calling it “flagrant”. Global leaders are responding to the alleged terror attack in Nice , France, pledging solidarity with the city and condemning the violence that has left at least three people dead.

There is nothing at this stage to link the knife attack in front of the French consulate in Jeddah, which was slightly injured on Thursday, October 29, with the attack in Nice that same day.

Almost at the time when three people were murdered, Thursday, October 29, in Nice , a security guard was attacked with a knife and slightly injured in front of the French consulate in Jeddah, the large city of western Saudi Arabia, close to Mecca. The attacker is a Saudi Arabian, to whom the authorities have given no information. He was quickly arrested in this ultra-secure diplomatic quarter, where many soldiers of the Saudi National Guard are stationed.

FAKE OFF - Videos that are not related to the knife attack in the Notre-Dame church in Nice resurface on social networks An knife attack took place this Thursday morning in the Notre-Dame basilica Lady of Nice .

The attack resulted in "minor injuries," Saudi authorities said, and the victim has been transported to a hospital for treatment. The stabbing took place just hours after a terror attack in a church in Nice , France, that left three people dead. French police have arrested the assailant and are treating the

They called on the Saudi authorities to investigate the attack and secure the ‘security of French In Nice , three people were killed by a knifeman at the Notre-Dame Basilica around 10am (local time) It is not yet clear if the three attacks are linked . The attacks are the second and third terrorist incidents

The victim is an employee of a local security company, under contract with the consulate. Again, authorities did not say whether it was a Saudi or an immigrant worker. No indication of the motive for the assault either.

There is nothing at this stage to link the attack on Jeddah with the attack in Nice. The latter, perpetrated inside a church, bears the mark of previous attacks against the "crusaders" inspired by the Islamic State on French soil since 2015. The attack on Jeddah seems to be part of in the recent turmoil caused by the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Since Emmanuel Macron defended freedom of expression, on October 21, during the national tribute to assassinated professor Samuel Paty, and that he recalled that blasphemy was a right in France, demonstrations follow one another in several Muslim countries, where this same blasphemy is often a crime.

This Thursday morning, three people were killed, including two in a church, in the heart of Nice during a knife attack, causing shock in France on the eve of a reconfinement to fight against Covid-19. The perpetrator was arrested.

Saudi police say the attacker in Jeddah was a Saudi citizen, but it did not give the nationality of the guard, who they say has sustained minor injuries. A Saudi citizen has wounded a guard in a knife attack at the French consulate in Jeddah on Thursday, state media and the French embassy said.

The French Embassy said the consulate was subject to an “ attack by knife which targeted a guard” The stabbing in the Saudi Arabian port city came just hours after a knife-wielding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” beheaded a woman and killed two other people at a church in the southern French city of Nice .

This was still the case on Thursday, the day of Mawlid al-Nabi, anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. Several anti-French rallies have taken place in Libya, at the call of Islamist groups. The biggest protest took place on Tuesday in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Tens of thousands of protesters there conspired the “Macron demon” and called for a boycott of French products. Launched on social media, again by Islamist activists, the movement has had very little effect.

Libya and Iran have criticized French President . But only one state, Turkey, has openly taken a stand against France and called for this boycott. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Emmanuel Macron of "directing a campaign of hatred" against Muslims going so far as to question his "sanity". Beyond the caricatures of Mohammed, Erdogan continues his showdown with France, which began a long time ago on other issues: Syria, Libya ...

Like the Vatican, Ankara expressed its solidarity with France on Thursday after the attack on Notre-Dame Basilica despite the disputes of recent days. On the other hand, the former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad split a tweet to say that "Muslims had the right to kill millions of French people for past massacres".

A Saudi man was arrested Thursday after stabbing a guard at the French Consulate in the port city of Jiddah, Saudi Arabia ’s state media reported. French policemen and firemen stand next to Notre Dame church after a knife attack , in Nice , France, Thursday, Oct.

The attack happened after a knife-wielding man shouting "Allahu Akbar" beheaded a woman and killed two other people in the French city of Nice .

But many Muslim countries, yet very close to France, remain in the ambiguity, stuck between their interests and the pressure of an opinion which does not understand that one can defend caricatures of the prophet. Morocco, while strongly condemning the attacks, thus denounced Sunday "these provocations offending the sanctity of the Muslim religion". And yesterday, Saudi Arabia did condemn the Jeddah and Nice attacks. But Ryad had three days earlier rejected caricatures, "which engender hatred, violence and extremism" ...

The tension has pushed Paris to invite French expatriates and tourists to be cautious, "in particularly when traveling and in frequented places ”. Yesterday, the head of diplomacy Jean-Yves Le Drian tried to lower the pressure by launching an "message of peace to the Muslim world" from France, "country of tolerance", not from "contempt or rejection".
