French Prison Officers Ambushed: Details, Reactions, and Ongoing Manhunt

French Prison Officers Ambushed and Killed in Convoy Attack

Two French Prison Officers Killed in Ambush

Two French prison officers were tragically killed when a convoy transporting a Muslim inmate was ambushed by armed men. The assailants, wearing masks, attacked the convoy indiscriminately. The incident took place around 11 a.m. local time at the Incarville tollbooth in Eure, to the northwest of Paris.

Details of the Attack

The attack was well-coordinated, with two vehicles ramming into the prison van, effectively trapping it. Several men armed with assault rifles then opened fire on the officers, resulting in at least two fatalities and several injuries. There are conflicting reports in the French media regarding whether two or three officers were killed in the attack.

The Inmate and the Escape

The inmate being transported has been identified in the French press as 30-year-old Mohamed A. After the attack, he was taken into one of the vehicles by the assailants, who then fled the scene. The vehicles used in the attack, a white Audi A5 and a BMW 5 Series, were later found, with the Audi discovered torched not far from the crime scene. Mohamed A. had previously been convicted of burglary and was also facing charges related to attempted homicide and drug trafficking.

Reactions to the Attack

French Justice Minister Γ‰ric Dupond-Moretti expressed his condolences, stating that France was "in mourning" following the attack. He confirmed the deaths of at least two men, one of whom left behind a wife and two children, and the other a pregnant partner, parents, and friends. French President Emmanuel Macron also expressed his shock at the attack, pledging that everything possible would be done to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The Manhunt Continues

More than 200 police officers, including helicopter units, have been mobilized in the search for the fugitive and his accomplices. The manhunt is still ongoing.
