Dijon: Driver shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ ploughs car into pedestrians

A driver has been arrested after ramming his car into groups of people in the eastern French city of Dijon whilst shouting "Allahu Akbar" or "God is greatest." 11 people were injured in the incident.
The 40-year-old alleged attacker is reported to have driven his car into pedestrians in five locations around the city and to have done so in the name of the "children of Palestine." 
The attack on Sunday evening came the day after a French convert to Islam was shot dead after attacking three police officers with a knife, while also reportedly crying "Allahu Akbar" in the central town of Joue-les-Tours.
