Notre Dame gas canisters suspect pledged loyalty to ISIS

A document pledging loyalty to ISIS and belonging to the suspect was found after a standoff with police on Thursday night

A French security official has told Associated Press that a 19-year-old woman linked to gas canisters found in an abandoned car near Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral had pledged allegiance to ISIS.

Security in train stations around Paris was visibly higher on Friday as the investigation into the car widened.

The woman, Ines Madani, was injured in the leg and arrested after a standoff on Thursday night with police in Boussy-Saint-Antoine, south of Paris.

The security official, who was not authorised to be publicly identified, said French authorities have a document in which Madani declares allegiance to the extremist group.

Another official, who also cannot be identified, said one of the women pulled a knife and stabbed a police officer during the arrest.

Five women and two men have been arrested in the case.
