An Afghan non-terrorist has non-terroristically injured seven people during a Paris knife attack that is definitely nothing to do with terrorism:
Seven people including two British tourists were wounded Sunday in Paris after they were attacked by a man armed with a knife and an iron bar, according to police and other sources.
A source close to the inquiry said the suspect has been arrested and is believed to be an Afghan national.
“Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults,” the sources said, adding that the attacker had targeted “strangers in the street”.
Of the seven wounded, four are in a critical condition, police said.
A Google image search for Paris knife attack turns up a remarkable number of shots. These events are far from uncommon.

There are plans to further restrict the sale of corrosive substances — but why are such brutal attacks on the rise?
