France Acid Attack

The woman was mentally ill. That’s the story from Marseilles, France, after a 41-year-old French woman attacked four 20-something female Boston College students with cleaner containing hydrochloric acid. Immediately following the attack, the woman displayed photos of her own acid burns. Early reports indicate there were no cries of “Allahu Akbar” or other actions associated with terrorism.

The problem here is that media and law enforcement, particularly in Europe, are so hesitant to call any crime an act of terror until the evidence is so overwhelming they have no way of covering it up. This does appear to be an exception based upon the information we’re given; it appears that this was just a woman committing a violent crime as a result of her mental illness. We will continue to monitor the story for changes.

As for the victims, two were hit in the face and two were hit in the legs. All four were treated at a local hospital.
