Two people have died and seven others are injured after a knife attack outside a bakery in southern France, according to reports.

Police were called to a bakery in the town of Romans-sur-Isere around 11am on Saturday and arrested a man at the scene.

Local reports say the suspect is a 33-year-old Sudanese national and cite witnesses who claim he shouted Allahu Akbar before the attack.

At least one of the victims is described as being in a critical condition and several others are in a serious condition.

The knifeman is said to have attacked the manager and two customers before continuing his rampage on the street, France Bleu reported.

France’s national Anti-Terrorism Prosecutor’s Office is evaluating the case.
