Prosecutor says one person arrested after southern France attack

PARIS (Reuters) - Police have arrested a woman connected to a gunman who killed three people in southwestern France on Friday as he held up a car, fired on police and seized hostages in a supermarket, a French prosecutor said.

Francois Molins, who is heading up the investigation, said the attacker, Redouane Lakdim, 25, was known to security services for his links to radical Islam.

“The monitoring ... in 2016/2017 did not reveal any apparent signs that could lead (us) to foresee he would act,” Molins said.
