Paris Police Shoot Man Who Attacked Officer with Hammer Outside Notre-Dame

Quote:
French police have shot a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The assailant, later found to be also armed with kitchen knives, was brought down as he threatened passersby outside one of the French capital’s busiest tourist attractions on Tuesday afternoon.

Hundreds of people took refuge in the cathedral and nearby cafes as more than 100 police officers rushed to the scene.

Documents found on the attacker identified him as a 40-year-old Algerian who was a doctoral student in information science at a university in the east of France.

He had lived in France for three years to research a thesis on information science and communications and had previously worked as a journalist in Algeria and Sweden, one of his lecturers told French media.

The suspect claimed to be a “soldier of the caliphate” of Islamic State, according to a source close to the investigation. Investigators found a video of allegiance to Isis in his student residence.

The French interior minister, Gérard Collomb, said the attacker, was carrying “rudimentary weapons” and shouted “this is for Syria” as he hit the 22-year-old police officer.

The minister visited the prefecture of police, 50 metres from the scene of the attack, to talk to officers involved in the incident. He said the man approached a police patrol from behind at about 4.20pm on Tuesday, took a hammer out of his backpack and hit one of the officers in the head.

“His colleague reacted with sang-froid and fired to ensure the attacked officer was not further injured,” Collomb said. “I understand the police officer was only slightly injured but it could have been much worse if their colleague had not reacted so quickly. The attacker was injured and we are waiting for the prognosis.

“Once again the police and forces of security, in our country like other countries in Europe, are victims of an attack in the name of a criminal ideology. We see here we have passed from a sophisticated terrorism to one where the most ordinary tools can be used.

Collomb said the government was considering renewing the state of emergency, in place since the bombings and shootings in Paris in November 2015 that left 130 dead.

“The fight against terrorism is a priority for the president of the republic,” he said, adding that a defence meeting would be held at the Élysée Palace on Wednesday morning.

The attack came just three days after three knife-wielding men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people at restaurants and bars near Borough Market, leaving seven people dead.

The Notre-Dame incident was the latest in a series of attacks on French police and soldiers. One officer was shot dead by a gunman on the Champs Élysées in April.
