A knifeman has killed one person and wounded four in a suspected terror attack in central Paris.

The attacker was then shot dead by police in the Opéra district.

Witnesses say they heard him shout "Allah Akbar".

So‑called Islamic State (IS) later said one of its soldiers carried out the attack.

It took place in an area renowned for its nightlife.

People ran for cover into cafes and restaurants.

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted (in French): "France has once again paid in blood, but will not give an inch to the enemies of freedom."

Police first tried to stop the attacker with a stun‑gun before shooting him dead.

Two of the wounded are in a serious condition.
