London Independent – A suspected terrorist has attempted to attack a French soldier with a machete near Paris’ famed Le Louvre art gallery.

Prosecutors said the “attempted assassination” was being treated as a terror attack, amid the country’s continuing state of emergency.

Yves Lefebvre, a police union official, said the man launched his attack when four soldiers guarding the area told him he could not enter with his bags.
