Fatal Knife Attack Shakes French School: Teacher Killed, Two Others Seriously Injured

Tragedy struck the Gambetta Secondary School in Arras, northern France, as a teacher lost their life and two individuals suffered severe injuries in a shocking knife attack.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin confirmed that authorities had apprehended the assailant, who is now in police custody.

Reports from local authorities sadly confirmed the death of the teacher, and an arrest had been made in connection with the incident. Several others also sustained injuries, while students found themselves in a tense lockdown situation within the school premises.

One student recounted the horrifying scene, stating, "We left our classroom to head to the cafeteria, and we witnessed the assailant armed with two knives, attacking our teacher, who was covered in blood. He tried to calm the situation and shield us. Instructing us to evacuate, we were initially perplexed, but we eventually fled, while some others retreated upstairs."

BFMTV, a prominent French media outlet, citing an unnamed police source, identified the suspect as a former student of the school in his twenties.

French President Emmanuel Macron is scheduled to visit the town later today to address the alarming incident.

This is a developing news story, and further details will be released shortly. Stay tuned for the most comprehensive updates.
