The news not to be missed

After Saturday night's stabbing attack in Paris, in which a young German-Filipino tourist was killed and two others injured, questions are mounting about the attacker's situation. The main suspect, Armand Rajabpour-Miyandoab, a 26-year-old French-Iranian currently in police custody, was subject to a care order involving close psychiatric monitoring and controlled by a coordinating doctor. But "there was obviously a psychiatric failure, the doctors considered on several occasions that he was better," Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin told BFMTV on Monday.

"There is someone who is mentally ill, who is no longer taking medication to treat his delusions and who is undoubtedly acting out. We have to think about all this to protect the French people," insisted the Minister of the Interior. Armand Rajabpour-Miyandoab was sentenced to five years in prison in 2016 for conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism. He was released in 2020. In a video posted on Saturday, he said he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

What else you need to know

  • Éric Dupond-Moretti definitively relaxed. The chief prosecutor of the Court of Cassation, Rémy Heitz, announced on Monday that he would not appeal to the Court of Cassation against the acquittal of the Minister of Justice for illegal taking of interests. This decision is intended to "move towards appeasement," he said, "we have to move on very clearly, the minister said he wanted to turn the page."
  • Dozens of Israeli tanks entered the southern Gaza Strip on Monday, according to several witnesses. The Israeli army says it is expanding its ground offensive to attack Hamas. But hundreds of thousands of people are present in this area of the Palestinian enclave, raising fears of further civilian casualties.
  • TF1 journalist Ruth Elkrief has been placed under police protection after a tweet by the rebellious leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Gérald Darmanin announced on Monday, speaking of "threats" and an "outburst of hatred" against her. "Manipulative. If we don't insult Muslims, this fanatic is indignant," Mélenchon wrote on Sunday, after the journalist made a statement against her.

Soon the end of puffs? These single-use disposable electronic cigarettes, with their tangy taste and colourful design, are singled out for their impact on the environment but also on the health of young people. They do not contain tobacco, but may contain nicotine, a "poisonous" and "addictive" substance, MEPs denounce. On Monday evening, they will consider a bill to ban them. The text is supported by the ecologist Francesca Pasquini and the Macronist Michel Lauzzana, and was unanimously approved in committee. The bill is then expected to go to the Senate. Parliamentarians hope for a ban on puffs by the end of summer 2024.
