Two Dead in Paris Knife Attack

Two dead in Paris knife attack.

One person has been killed and five wounded in a knife attack in Paris, French police say.

They say the attacker - who has not been identified - was shot dead by police. Two of the injured are in a serious condition.

The incident happened in the Opéra district of central Paris.

Witnesses spoke of panic, as people tried to hide in restaurants and cafes. The motive for the attack late on Saturday was not immediately known.

The witnesses say police officers first tried to taser the attacker - but then fired two shots after this failed to stop the assailant, France24 reports.

French Interior Minister Gérard Colomb praised police for their "cool response". He said his first thoughts were "with the victims of this heinous act".

The Opera district is renowned for its vibrant nightlife
French police warned the public not to spread rumours.

"Please only share information coming from a trusted source," the police tweeted.

The Opera district is renowned for its vibrant nightlife, attracting tourists from around the world.

France has been on high alert following a series of attacks over the past three years. Some have been claimed or inspired by so-called Islamic State (IS).

Edit: Counterterrorism authorities have taken charge of the investigation into Saturday night's attack as the Islamic State group claimed the attacker as one of its "soldiers".

Paris police said the attacker was armed with a knife and targeted five people in the second district, a retail and dining precinct that is also home to the capital's opera.

A 29-year-old man was killed and two were seriously injured. The other two suffered less serious injuries.

Police union representative Rocco Contento said the assailant was shot dead by police after he rushed at them shouting "I will kill you, I will kill you!"

Its time for common sense knife control in Paris. Weapons of cutlery have no place in the streets of Paris.

If they don't have access to guns, they will use any means to try to harm/kill you. Don't be the next victim.

Paris attack: arrests in Strasbourg

French police have arrested two people in the eastern city of Strasbourg in connection with Saturday's fatal stabbing in the centre of Paris.

Officers are now questioning the parents and friends of the 21-year-old who had been flagged previously as a potential security risk.

What happened?

The attack happened in the bustling Opera district, known for its many restaurants, cafes and the Palais Garnier opera.

The attacker shouted "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest) as he began his stabbing rampage.

He fatally stabbed a 29-year-old man and wounded four others before he was shot dead by police.


Who was he?


Judicial sources have identified the attacker as Khamzat A, without giving his full name. French media are reporting it as Azimov.

Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said since 2016 he had been on a counter-terrorism watchlist of suspected radicals who may pose a threat to national security.

Has anyone claimed the attack?

Yes. ISIL said they were behind it but have provided no proof. Griveaux said the claim had not yet been fully authenticated.


In a which the SITE intelligence monitoring group said was posted by ISIL’s Amaq news agency, a young man described as the attacker pledged allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Speaking in French, his face largely obscured by a hood and scarf, he said “infidels” fighting ISIL were to blame. “You started it by killing Muslims,” he said.

It was not immediately possible to confirm the identity of the man in the .

It was the latest in a succession of attacks in France since January 2015 in which more than 240 people have been killed.

What is the Strasbourg link?


Judicial sources said the assailant’s parents as well as a friend of his were being held for questioning.
The friend, arrested in the eastern French city of Strasbourg, was born in 1997, a source said.

French media report the attacker had lived in Strasbourg for a long time before moving to Paris last year.

And what about the Chechen link?

The attacker became French when his mother obtained citizenship in 2010, according to Griveaux.
