Moroccan charged with terror attack on French train

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, has been charged with attempted murder of a terrorist nature and remanded in custody, according to the prosecutor’s submissions. Earlier Tuesday, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Khazzani had 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. Khazzani’s claims that he was only planning to rob passengers were “barely credible”, said Molins, adding that he had grown increasingly evasive in his responses to police and stopped responding entirely on Monday.
