PARIS — French soldiers non-stop glow on a male wielding a machete who shouted “Allahu akbar” as he pounded them near a Louvre museum in Paris on Friday. The assailant was severely wounded, according to internal media reports.

The incident happened during a Carrousel du Louvre, an subterraneous selling core that connects to the museum. The world-famous Louvre is home to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. It wasn’t immediately transparent if any tourists were during a stage of a attack at the time.

Yves Lefebvre, a police kinship official, pronounced a attacker, who was carrying dual backpacks and two machetes, attacked a soldier when he was told that he couldn’t move his bags into a mall.

“That’s when he got a blade out and that’s when he attempted to gash a soldier,” Lefebvre said, according to a Associated Press.

Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve pronounced a conflict was “terrorist in nature.”
