The attacker said he was acting in the name of the Islamic State group. The assailant was killed by police, and longtime friend Mohamed Aberouz is going on trial for complicity to terrorist murder. Aberouz denies involvement. The killings came amid a wave of attacks in France linked to the Islamic State group, and had a lasting effect on police officers around France.
