The terrorist attacked the passers-by in the centre of Paris

One person was killed and two were seriously injured.

Prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters the police's anti-terrorism unit would launch an investigation, given the aggressor's "mode of operation".

Police said the attacker's motives were still unknown.

The 21-year-old's father and mother are being held for questioning by police, a judicial source said.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility via its Amaq news agency, but provided no proof for its claim.

France's Interior Minister, Gérard Collomb, denounced the "odious" attack in a tweet, and praised the police officers who took down the assailant.

Following the stabbing of five people in central Paris by a man who shouted about Allah, a French-Jewish lawmaker said France was experiencing a "knife intifada". The prosecutor's office revealed that he was screaming "Allahu Akbar" during the incident.

The identity of the slain attacker and the reason for his actions were unclear. The Islamic State group claimed the attacker as one of its "soldiers".

Local police said four people were wounded and one victim was killed in the attack near the city's famed Opera Garnier. The law led to a heated discussion in the parliament, while the United Nations experts criticized it for "vague wording".

In John 19:27, as He was being crucified, He asked the Disciple John to take care of His mother after He died. Thoroughly disillusioned, she spent years speaking out, and even filing lawsuits, against the "profiteers".

Police union representative Rocco Contento told Reuters that the assailant, after attacking bystanders with a knife, rushed at police shouting "I will kill you, I will kill you!"

The news agency Reuters has seen a photo claiming to show the attacker, who is bare-chested, bearded, and wearing black pants.

Strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, who was nominated for the Chechen presidency by Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2007 and is now firmly in control, has tried to halt IS recruitment but human rights activists say his measures have been brutal and have often helped radicalisation.

A separate list, the File for the Prevention of Terrorist Radicalization (FSPRT), focuses on people judged to be terror threats.

It has not been confirmed if the image shows him from the time of the attack.

The second district is home to Paris's opera and landmark retail stores.

The woman was bleeding and a young man fended off the attacker who then ran away, he said.

"France is once again paying the price of blood but will not cede an inch to enemies of freedom", Mr Macron said.
