A customer sustained a chest injury and was hospitalized, while a woman at the market's cash register sustained a less severe injury.

An unidentified woman yelled "Allahu Akbar!" and then stabbed two people with a box cutter late Sunday morning at a French Riviera supermarket in the town of La-Seyne-Sur-Mer, outside Toulon.

A woman shouting "Allahu Akbar" has attacked and injured two people at a supermarket in La Seyne-sur-Mer, southeastern France. However, that does not exclude the possibility that the suspect was radicalized, Marchal added.

The woman, who did not have a police record, was overpowered by others in the supermarket and has been taken into custody. Hospitalization was required only for the visitor of the store, but his life is not in danger.

He added that "contrary to what was said at the start, she was not wearing a veil, but a black tunic over black pants and black glasses".

He said police from Toulon had raided the woman's home in an attempt to discover whether she had links with Islamic State (ISIS). "We don't yet know if this is a terrorist act, but in any case it was terrifying", he added.
