ISIS knifeman 'shouting Allahu Akbar' kills one and leaves four injured in stabbing rampage in Paris before being shot dead by police as Macron says 'France has again paid price of blood'

A suspected terrorist shouted 'Allah Akbar' as he slashed at the the throats of innocent bystanders in Paris tonight — killing one and injuring four others.

Armed French police swooped on the French capital in the historic Opera Garnier opera house shortly after 9pm yesterday. 

The bloodbath follows a series of Islamic State and Al Qaeda attacks in France which has seen almost 250 killed by terrorists since early 2015.

Following tonight's attack, an investigating source said: 'A 29-year-old man died after being stabbed by an assailant close to the Opera House.

Pictures from Twitter appear to show a man lying in the middle of a street after a knifeman went on a rampage in Paris, slashing at the throats of his targets

A heavy police presence remains at the scene of the attack which unfolded in central Paris yesterday as the man, described by police as in his 20s, targeted passersby with a knife

The man attacked five people with a knife, one of whom died, police said. Two were in serious condition and all the victims are in hospital

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb hailed in a tweet the 'sang-froid and reaction of the police who neutralised the attacker.' A large area was cordoned off where police, fire and rescue vehicles converged.


The initial attack took place on Rue Monsigny, in the 2ndarrondissement, where crowds were seen running away in panic

'The attacker targeted an area full of restaurants and bars close. He shouted 'Kill me before I kill you' and also used the words Alluhu Akbar.

'He was slashing throats indiscriminately using a knife before police arrived on the scene. They were able to shoot him dead.'

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility, according to the SITE monitoring group.

'The executor of the stabbing operation in the city of Paris is a soldier of the Islamic State and the operation was carried out in response to the calls to target the coalition states,' a 'security source' told IS's official Amaq news agency, according to SITE.

The initial attack took place on Rue Monsigny, in the 2ndarrondissement, where crowds were seen running away in panic.

At one stage, many were trapped inside a Japanese restaurant, with many fearing the knifeman was inside with them.

'Just before 9pm, we saw people rushing inside the restaurant screaming that a man was inside with a bloody knife,' a witness called Laurent told Le Parisien newspaper.

The injured have been taken to the Georges Pompidou hospital, where two are said to be in a very serious condition

'People were throwing themselves on the floor in panic. Five minutes later, there was a second crowd movement.

'Customers blocked the door of the restaurant, as they were afraid that attacker had slipped inside. Then, it calmed down. Outside, even the police seemed a bit lost at first.'

Shocked tourists and residents looked on from behind the security perimeter.

'I was on the cafe terrace, I heard three, four shots, it happened very fast,' said 47-year-old Gloria.

'Then the bartenders told us to come inside very quickly. Then I went out to see what was going on, and then I saw a man on the ground,' she added.

Anti-terrorist judges from Paris have launched an investigation, with the city prosecutor Francois Molins confirming that the suspected 'Allah Akbar' — words commonly used by Isis fanatics.

President Emmanuel Macron praised 'the courage' of the police who 'neutralized the terrorist'.

In a tweet, Mr Macron said: 'France pays once again the price of blood but does not yield an inch to the enemies of freedom'.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb hailed in a tweet the 'sang-froid and reaction of the police who neutralised the attacker'.

The injured have been taken to the Georges Pompidou hospital, where two are said to be in a very serious condition.

Another witness called Gloria, 47, told the AFP news agency: 'I was on a café terrace and heard four shots. I then came out to see what was happening, then I saw a man on the ground.'

It follows an Isis attack in south west France on March 23, which saw the number of terrorist victims killed on French soil since January 2015 rise to 245.
