France train attack was 'targeted and premeditated'

Ayoub El Khazzani was overpowered by three US Marines and a British IT consultant after he boarded a high-speed train in Brussels armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifleAyoub El Khazzani, a Moroccan national, boarded a high-speed train in Brussels Friday armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle and 270 rounds of ammunition, as well as a Luger pistol, a bottle of petrol and a box-cutter, said Paris prosecutor Francois Molins. The 25-year-old walked out of a toilet cubicle armed and topless before being wrestled to the floor and subdued by two young American off-duty servicemen, their friend and a 62-year-old British consultant who have since been given France’s top honour, the Legion d’Honneur. A Franco-American man was shot and injured in the attack, which Molins described as “targeted and premeditated”.
