'allahu akbarist' stabs pedestrians in central Paris, one fatally

The suspect in a deadly knife attack in central Paris on Saturday evening was born in 1997 in the Russian republic of Chechnya, a judicial source says.

The attacker killed a 29-year-old man and wounded four other people in the busy Opéra district before being shot dead by police.

The suspect had shouted "Allahu Akbar" witnesses said.

The self-called Islamic State (IS) later said one of its "soldiers" had carried out the attack.
