French authorities announced that a 25-year-old Afghan refugee stabbed one person to death and injured another in Bordeaux, France, on the day of Eid al-Fitr.

The assailant was subsequently shot dead by the police.

The incident, which occurred on Wednesday, the first day of Eid al-Fitr, saw an attacker targeting two men near the Garonne River in Bordeaux.

Frédérique Porterie, the public prosecutor of Bordeaux, identified the perpetrator as an Afghan refugee. Porterie informed reporters that the attacker confronted the men over consuming alcohol during Eid and then assaulted them with a knife.
