FRENCH POLICE SHOOT MAN HOLDING KNIFE IN METZ  

  French police have shot and injured a man holding a knife in Metz, two days after a fatal stabbing in Paris.

Christian Mercuri, the public prosecutor in the city in north-east France, said the man involved in the incident on Sunday, who was known to police both “for his radicalisation and for a personality disorder”, shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) before being shot. A police source said the suspect, who was born in 1989, threatened officers when they arrived at the scene, and they fired shots to overpower him.

“He is injured but his life is not in danger,” the source said, adding that no one else was hurt. Read HERE.
