Giuliani backtracks on comments about Mueller interview: Trump may answer obstruction questions
However, Giuliani said there is still debate over whether the questions will include topics over possible obstruction of justice. Mueller's probe, which has come to be known as "Russiagate", has been around nearly as long as Trump has been president.

The attacker allegedly stabbed three people at the MK2 theatre near the Quai de la Loire, La Parisien reported, before two men playing petanque at a court nearby tried to disrupt the assailant by throwing a ball at him. The officer had no information about the identities of the injured.

France has seen smaller lone-wolf attacks in recent months.

Four of the injured are known to be in serious conditions in hospital.

And on June 17, two people were hurt in another southern town when a woman attacked them in a supermarket with a boxcutter knife.

A source close to the investigation said: "Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults".
