Exactly a year after the infamous Charlie Hebdo attacks a man has shot dead outside a police station in northern Paris. It has been alledged he was wearing a suicide vest.
It has been reported that the man attempted to enter the building with a knife shouting Allahu Ackbar (Arabic for God is Great) before he was shot by police.
A resident in the street told Le Parisien: “I heard three or four gunshots at about midday. I work nights, so that woke me up.
“When I went to the window I saw that there was one person on the ground with blood on his body.
“Right now there is no-one in the street. All the shops have closed their shutters and everything is locked down.”
