While the Paris prosecutor’s office took up an investigation into the attack with a claim of “attempted murder”, the anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office said there was not yet enough evidence to launch an investigation.

Fingerprint identified

Police were able to identify the suspect, who had no ID, by analyzing his fingerprints. According to preliminary investigation data, the attacker is a young Libyan immigrant born in 2000.

It was reported that the asylum application of the suspect who entered France 3 years ago was not accepted and the decision was made to “deport” him in the summer of 2022, 6 months ago. It was also announced that he has a police file for some common crimes such as “damage to private property”.

the size of 11 football fields

Gare Du Nord, which is the largest train station in Europe and connects the northern suburbs of Paris with the city center, is visited daily by about 700,000 people. Gare Du Nord is also the starting point for EuroStar high speed trains linking England and France and high speed trains to Belgium.

Gare du Nord, from where 2,000 trains depart daily, is the equivalent of 11 football fields of 80,000 square meters and sections connected by hundreds of escalators. Moreover, since 2014 there is a police station in the center of the station. The police, customs police and security guards of the SNCF railway agency provide constant surveillance on a daily basis.

The fact that “immigrants whose deportation has been decided” is often behind attacks in France fuels anti-immigrant rhetoric in the country. Particularly far-right parties advocating the rapid deportation of illegal immigrants accuse the government of “taking insufficient action against criminal immigrants.”
