Trump Says Paris Attack Is A Wake Up Call For America

The soldier was patrolling as part of the Operation Sentenelle foot-patrols around the Louvre

A soldier opened fire and the man was struck five times, once in the stomach, Paris police chief Michel Cadot said. Police shut down entrances around where the attack took place and evacuated the surrounding areas.

Mr Molins said the attacker had no identity papers but investigators used his mobile phone to find out that he was a resident in the United Arab Emirates and came to Paris on a tourist visa on January 26.

Officials say a man carrying two bags tried to enter an underground shopping mall near the Louvre Museum around 10 a.m. Friday. The attacker armed with a knife reportedly cried out "Allahu Akbar".

Health situation of shot machete-wielding man, who rushed at soldiers near Louvre Museum in Paris, improved and was placed into custody on Saturday, according to local media reports. Soldiers told him he was not able to bring in his two bags and immediately started attacking.

Two rucksacks belonging to the suspect, who shouted "God is greatest" in Arabic, have been inspected but no explosives were found.

Witnesses reported seeing a crowd of people running away from the scene and screaming.

"I wrote him off as a xenophobe", Vincent Boissoneault, a classmate, told The Globe and Mail.

A second person was detained in connection with the assault Friday, said a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

Mr Brandet said about 1,000 people were inside the actual museum and were held inside in safe areas.

President Donald Trump responded to the event, saying that the U.S better "get smart". But they are investigating the incident as a terrorist act.

Heavily armed soldiers have been on the streets of Paris since the terrorist attacks on the city in November 2015.

The museum is the most-visited in the world and one of the French capital's most recognizable tourist attractions. Hamahmy posted selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, which were suspended after the attack.
