French soldier opened fire after a suspicious man with a knife had tried to enter the Louvre museum in Paris, France, according to media reports. The man was carrying out a suitcase (no explosives have been found so far).

The French Interior Ministry said that there had been a “grave public security incident” in the vicinity of the Louvre museum.

According to Reuters, the attacker cried out “Allahu Akbar” and tried to assault the soldier with a knife.

“We are dealing with an attack from an individual who was clearly aggressive and represented a direct threat, and whose comments lead us to believe that he wished to carry out a terrorist incident,” the head of Paris’ police force, Michel Cadot, told media.

Cadot added that a second person has been detained, following suspicious behavior.
