Knife attacker shouting Allahu Akhbar shot in Paris

A man has been shot after attacking a soldier with a machete whilst shouting "Allahu Akhbar" in Paris.

The man was refused entry to the Louvre with a suitcase and immediately pulled out a knife and shouted "Allahu Akhbar". He was then shot by one of the soldiers patrolling the Louvre although sadly not fatally.

French authorities have described it as a "serious security incident" but have yet to declare him mentally ill.
