Paris attacker pledged loyalty to ISIS

Police said the attacker's motives were still unknown.The attack comes as France is under a constant threat from terrorism.

Police union representative Rocco Contento told Reuters that the assailant, after attacking bystanders with a knife, rushed at police shouting "I will kill you, I will kill you!" Most of the attacks have either been claimed by the Islamic State group or been carried out in their name. The man said French citizens should pressure their government "if you want it (attacks) to end". A friend of the attacker has also been detained for questioning, a judicial source told CNN on Sunday.

French prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters the police's anti-terrorism unit would launch an investigation, given the aggressor's "mode of operation".

On Sunday, Aamaq released a posthumous video said to show the attacker calling on Muslims in Europe to "take action in the land of disbelievers" if they can't travel to the crumbling caliphate in Iraq and Syria, which has been pounded by coalition forces. Less than 24 hours later, investigators were questioning three people - his parents and a friend. The perpetrator of the attack was killed by police at the scene of the incident.

The security watchlist was a key tool for police and intelligence services, he said, arguing that experts were opposed to using it as a basis for roundups or deportations.

Interior Ministry spokesman Frederic de Lanouvelle told The Associated Press on Sunday that the man was born in the Russian republic of Chechnya in 1997 and did not have any previous convictions or arrests. The AP reported the attacker's parents are in custody as well.
