A knife-wielding assailant who attacked a soldier at a major subway location in Paris early Friday was quickly arrested, police said.

Reports state that the man was not previously known to the police, and has been arrested.

The attacker approached the soldier from behind and threatened him with a knife while shouting slogans about the Islamic State terror group, reported French broadcaster BFMTV.

The French army's anti-terrorism Operation Sentinel was established following the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.

"The man is under control".

On Tuesday, Mnuchin insisted that a tax overhaul would happen this year. "But the president wants to raise military spending". President Trump has said that they should get taxed at a higher rate that counts that money as income.


The soldier was a part of the country's Sentinelle group, a military operation set up to protect Paris in the aftermath of terror attacks that have left hundreds dead in recent years.

According to initial data, the French soldier was attacked by an unknown person armed with an arme blanche. Last month a man rammed his auto into a group of soldiers near Paris, injuring six of them.

French police have one terrorism suspect in custody and are on a manhunt for another terror suspect after two separate terror attacks today. No one else was attacked or injured.

The local prosecutor's office said witnesses of the attack in a public park of the town center heard the attacker shout Allahu Akbar while hitting the women, who were taken to hospital but whose life is not in danger. The assailant had also threatened passersby before targeting the three police officers, according to BFM TV.
