DeTect: Suspect in France knife-attack misrepresented
The man was identified as Abdelmasih Hanoun (31), a Christian Syrian refugee.
A few weeks back, a video surfaced on social media, which showed a knife-wielding man stabbing people, including toddlers and an elderly man, in a playground in Annecy, France. The man was identified as Abdelmasih Hanoun (31), a Christian Syrian refugee. A section of social media users claimed the man is actually a Muslim whose real name is Selwan Majd. AltNews ran multiple checks and as per its findings, so far there is no evidence to suggest that the Annecy stabbing suspect is a Muslim.
