France: Afghan runs amok with knife stabs 7 people

(Paris) Last night at around 11pm by the canal near Quai de Loire in the 19th district of Paris. A Afghan male aged in his 30s and identified only as Smain decided to attack people with a 16 inch knife and an Iron bar.

Thankfully a group of French men playing petanque, (a French game with heavy metallic balls) on witnessing the attacks threw their balls at the Afghan, disabling him and held him until the police arrived. However 7 people were injured, including 4 seriously.  The police have issued a statement:
"Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults," the sources said, adding that the attacker had targeted "strangers in the street."

Why am I not surprised and then the authorities wonder why people are gravitating to the right of the political spectrum across Europe.
