By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Paris (dpa) - France has seen multiple attacks since 2015, most of them carried out in the name of radical Islam. Here is a chronology of the most recent events:

April 20, 2017: A gunman shoots a policeman dead on the Champs-Elysees in central Paris. He also injures two officers and a German tourist before being shot dead by police.

March 18, 2017: Troops shoot a man dead in Paris‘ Orly airport after he tries to seize a patrolling soldier‘s gun.

February 3, 2017: A French soldier shoots a machete-wielding attacker near the Louvre museum in Paris.

July 26, 2016: Two assailants, claiming to be members of the Islamic State extremist group, kill an 84-year-old priest in a church in northern France and are killed by police as they left the church.

July 14, 2016: 84 people are killed and many are wounded when an attacker drives a truck into a crowd of Bastille Day revellers.

June 14: A police commander and his female companion are killed in their home by a man who then posts a live Facebook video pledging allegiance to Islamic State.

November 13, 2015: Islamic State extremists kill 130 people in Paris in coordinated attacks at the Bataclan concert hall and bars and restaurants. In addition, three terrorists blow themselves up outside the Stade de France during a football friendly between France and Germany but without killing anyone else.

August 22: Train passengers subdue a 25-year-old Moroccan, allegedly linked to radical Islam, who wielded a Kalashnikov on a high-speed train en route from Amsterdam to Paris.

June 26: One person is beheaded and two injured in an Islamist attack on the fortified plant of US chemical company Air Products in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier. Authorities say the main suspect had ties to extremist Salafist organisations.

January 7-9: Twelve people are killed at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The gunmen, brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, die in a shootout with police at a hideout north-east of Paris. A police officer and four hostages at a supermarket are killed by another Islamist, Amedy Coulibaly, who is fatally shot by security forces.
