One killed in Paris knife attack by man shouting 'Allah Akbar'By Julie Carriat and Emmanuel Jarry PARIS (Reuters) – An assailant shouting “Allah Akbar” killed a passer-by in a knife attack that also wounded four others in the heart of Paris late on Saturday before he was shot dead by police, French authorities said. French prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters the police’s anti-terrorism unit would launch an investigation, given the aggressor’s “mode of operation.” French President Emmanuel Macron praised officers for “neutralizing the terrorist.” France “will not yield an inch to the enemies of freedom,” Macron said on Twitter. The country has been on high alert amid a series of attacks, commissioned or inspired by the Islamic State militant group, over the past three years that has killed dozens of people.
