About it to Agency has informed a source in law enforcement bodies.

Paris Police tweeted: An attack on five people in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris by an individual armed with a knife: One victim has died, two are seriously wounded and two are injured slightly.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said witnesses reported that the suspect shouted "Allahu Akbar", which is Arabic for "Allah is the Greatest".

Inning accordance with WEBSITE, the classification of a "soldier of the Islamic State" typically describes an ISIS-inspired attack, rather than one straight collaborated by the horror group.

The Paris prosecutor's office, which handles all terrorism cases, is taking over the investigation.

French police officers pass next to the place where a man stabbed several people Saturday night in Paris before he was shot dead by police. His identity and motives are not known.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the alleged attacker was "neutralised" by police and praised officers for their actions. "They encircled him and he tried to attack them with a knife but they shot him down", he told reporters.

Later the IS group said it was behind the attack, in a brief statement posted on its news outlet. Investigators have not yet said when the man arrived in France.

A witness who was sitting in a Japanese restaurant with his girlfriend told Le Parisien: Just before 9pm, we saw people rushing inside the restaurant screaming that a man was outside with a bloody knife.

A picture seen by Reuters, which a source said showed the attacker, showed a bare-chested and bearded young man dressed in black pants.

He said the four people injured were recovering and "out of danger" and that authorities were working to identify the suspect along with anyone who may have helped him. "She is recovering. She was operated on and saved", he said after visiting the victims in hospital.

A report from the BBC's Sarah Rainsford in 2016 spoke of the fear that the fighters would return to carry out terrorist attacks at home.

Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, said: Tonight our city was bruised.

French security forces have been on high alert since a series of terrorist attacks, mostly claimed by the Islamic State extremist organisation, that claimed more than 230 lives in 2015 and 2016.
