Man Arrested After Knife Attack in Paris Wounds Seven

TEMPO.CO, Paris French police detained a man who wounded seven people in a knife attack in downtown Paris late on Sunday, a judicial source said early on Monday, adding there was no initial indication the attack was linked to terrorism.

Four of the victims suffered severe wounds, the source said.

The incident took place just after 11pm (2100 GMT) on Sunday on the banks of a canal in the north-east of the capital.

A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the Canal de l’Ourcq said he saw a man who had already assaulted people being chased by two other men who tried to stop him.

"He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife," he said.

A police investigation has been launched into attempted murder, according to a judicial source.
