The suspect, a French citizen who was born in Chechnya in 1997 was identified by authorities as Khamzat Azimov, and was shot dead by police responding to the stabbing in central Paris just after 9 p.m. Saturday.

Hours after the incident the terrorist group ISIS claimed the killer as one of its “soldiers,” the SITE Intel group, which monitors terrorist messaging, said.

“The executor of the stabbing operation in the city of Paris is a soldier of the Islamic State and the operation was carried out in response to the calls to target the coalition states,” the SITE Intel group reported the Amaq Agency, ISIS’s media wing, as having said.

According to SITE, the designation of a “soldier of the Islamic State” generally refers to an ISIS-inspired attack, as opposed to one directly coordinated by the terror group.
