Knife-wielding man attacks Paris soldier no injuries police

A knife-wielding man attacked a soldier on patrol as part of an anti-terror operation in Paris on Friday but did not cause any injuries, police said. The individual was not known to the police, the source added. In January 2015, Islamist gunmen had stormed into the offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 journalists.

According to local reports, a man tried to stab a soldier from the anti-terrorism Sentinelle Operation who was patrolling a metro station in Paris at around 6.30 local time (04:30 GMT).

According to initial data, the French soldier was attacked by an unknown person armed with an arme blanche.

French Defense Minister Florence Parly said the number of troops involved in the Sentinelle operation would remain at 7,000 under the plan. "The man has been seized, which is further proof of the professionalism and efficiency of the Sentinel soldiers in this protection mission", she said.

Edie Windsor, Mother of Marriage Equality, Dead at 88
As the story goes, the pair met and danced the night away. "It's kind of insane - we lived together for 40 years". Born Edith Schlain, Windsor kept her last name after marrying Saul Windsor in a union that lasted just one year.

The soldier was unhurt in the incident. Police confirmed they are treating the attack as a terror incident. One officer was hit in the head with the hammer, prompting police to fire at the attacker.

France declared a state of emergency following attacks in Paris in November 2015, in which more than 130 people were killed.

Yesterday (14 September) the French government said it would make changes to the military force created to protect sensitive sites after the deadly extremist attacks on France in 2015.
