Knife-wielding man shot dead trying to enter Paris police station

Police in Paris have shot a man dead who tried to enter a police station armed with a knife, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’ It was believed he was wearing a suicide belt, but police union sources say it was fake.

The French broadcaster iTele says the incident took place at the Goutte d’Or police station in Paris’ 18th district.

Anna Polonyi, a journalist from the New York Times, has published a photo of a man lying on the ground outside the building. She said a robot appears to be inspecting the body.
