  • Police say authorities have been hunting for a second suspect but he is no longer being pursued

French police are hunting for at least one suspect after a knife attack near Lyon that left one dead and six injured.

Emergency services said three of the wounded were in a serious condition.

Two men, one armed with a knife and the other with a skewer, carried out the attack in Villeurbanne, a Lyon suburb, in southeastern France, the official said, without giving further details on the motive for the stabbing.

The suspected attacker assaulted residents waiting at a bus stop and then ran towards an underground station before being seized by other local people and transport staff, Lyon mayor Lyon Gerard Collomb told reporters.

Worldwide Measles Cases are Increasing
But this year, in addition to 2014 and 2018, has seen a jump in the number of known cases. In all of 2016 there were only 5,273 cases in Europe.

The regional official couldn't be named because of French government policy.

The suspect provided contradictory information to the police and it was unclear if the 19-year-old victim knew the attacker, according to officials. He says national security forces aren't involved in the search, just a few dozen local police officers and a helicopter.

France saw a series of knife attacks a year ago.
