Terror attack on Amsterdam-Paris train

In a Thalys speed train from Amsterdam to Paris, a terrorist has attempted an attack.  He tried to open fire with a Kalashnikov on train passengers.  Three Americans, two of them military, managed to prevent a massacre by overcoming the terrorist.  One of the Americans was wounded.  According to various media, the terrorist is 26-year-old Moroccan Ayoub El Kahzzani, who currently lives in France after leaving Spain.  He was being watched by the European terror authorities because of his jihadist convictions.  It has also been reported that he fought in Syria, but it is not clear yet with which terror movement.
