Crime[edit]

The suburb is known for gang violence and poverty.[4] It also has Islamists among its large Muslim population, with 50 local people suspected of having left France to fight for the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, according to security sources quoted by AFP news agency.[4] Trappes is a center of Islamic fundamentalism with hardline Atharis following Salafism and Wahhabism prominent. According to the French government, 67 people from Trappes have joined the Islamic State and others have carried out attacks inside France.[5]

In July 2013, Trappes police station was attacked by a mob of French Muslims in response to the arrest of a man who had assaulted a police officer during an identity check on his entirely veiled wife (face covering is illegal in France).[6][7][8] A man on the terrorism watch list of the French police, killed his mother and sister with a knife in Trappes on August 23, 2018. Amaq News Agency claimed responsibility on behalf of the Islamic State group. French interior minister Gérard Collomb however stated he was a man with mental issues rather than someone inspired by the organisation.[9]
