Knife-wielding man attacks Paris soldier, no injuries

BREAKING: Knifeman 'shouting Allah' attacks soldier at Paris train station near Notre Dame

The man reportedly shouted references to the Islamic State group while attacking the soldier and was quickly arrested.

A knife-wielding man attacked a soldier on patrol as part of an anti-terror operation in Paris but did not cause any injuries, police said.

According to initial data, the French soldier was attacked by an unknown person armed with an arme blanche. In January 2015, Islamist gunmen had stormed into the offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 journalists.

The Sentinelle is a French military operation created to deploy additional police and gendarmerie forces in the country after the January 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.

" The man has been mastered, this is proof of professionalism and efficiency of soldiers of "Sentinel" in this mission of protection, has responded to minister for armed forces, Florence Parly, on Europe 1".

Asked whether Wilshere will start against the Germans, he said: "I don't give the team out today - I will give it out tomorrow". It is already clear that reasserting themselves in the Premier League will be a huge task for Arsenal this season.

The soldier was unhurt in the incident.

Including the attacks today in Paris and Burgundy, France has already seen 10 terrorist incidents in 2017.

Soldiers and police officers have in recent years frequently been the target of attackers in France who often claim allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) terror group. The attacker died when the vehicle caught fire and no soldiers were injured.

This new attack "justifies what we want to do, that's to say make these (security) measures even more unpredictable, undetectable for potential attackers", she said.
