Man attempts to attack Paris police station with a meat cleaver

A man in northern Paris attempting to storm a police station with a meat cleaver was shot dead by French security forces on Thursday.

 

Police said that the man in the Goutte d’Or neighbourhood was wearing a fake explosive vest, carrying a piece of paper with the Islamic State group flag and shouting “Allahu Akbar”.

 

Images from local media showed the man wearing a camouflage coat, lying on the ground after being shot by police with a bomb disposal robot inspecting his body.

 

French officials have not called this a terrorist attack they are still investigating.
