A suspected terrorist was shot by police after a teacher was reportedly decapitated in the street in Paris this evening.
The incident happened in Conflans St Honorine, a suburb in the north of the French capital.
Armed police shot the suspect multiple times after he refused to surrender, according to reports from the scene.
Reports also emerged that the attacker shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ in the street before he was shot.
Initial reports suggested that the man had been ‘decapitated’. It is suspected to have been a targeted attack although investigations are at an early stage.
France’s anti-terror prosecutor PNAT has opened an investigation into the incident.
