France Raise Terror Threat Level Following Shooting at Christmas Market in Strasbourg

France Raise Terror Threat Level Following Shooting at Christmas Market in Strasbourg

REPORT • Dec 2018

Two people were killed, and at least 14 were injured after a gunman indiscriminately opened fire on crowds attending the Strasbourg Christmas market near Place Kleber at approximately 20:00 (local time). The suspect fled the scene after the initial attack and managed to reach a taxi which dropped him off near Neudorf on the border with Germany. The gunman is yet to be detained by French authorities, with some speculating he could have fled over the border into Germany. France have subsequently raised their terror level to the highest level. However, despite the recent attack, the risk from terrorism in the country remains low due to the capabilities and preventative measures implemented by the French authorities.
