Muslim man, armed with a machete attacked police near Louvre museum, Paris, France
French investigators believe the man who launched a machete attack in Paris, before being shot and wounded by a soldier, is a 29-year-old Egyptian man who entered the country on a tourist visa.
A soldier on Friday shot and wounded a man armed with a machete who was trying to enter the Louvre museum in central Paris, police said.
Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the incident was "terrorist in nature".
Police said that the man had been trying to get into the museum's underground shop with a suitcase. His bag contained no explosives.
