Police foil attack on officers in Paris by knifeman as France remains on highest alert after Nice terror incident

Police in Paris Tasered a man and shot him with rubber bullets as he tried to attack two officers with knives, according to reports.

The man threatened officers with the blades after they challenged him on Friday, a police source told Reuters.

The officers intervened after police received a call reporting that a man armed with a knife was knocking on his neighbours door in a southwestern district of the city.

The officers confronted the man in the courtyard of the building and used a Taser and rubber bullets to overpower him, the source said. No one else was hurt.

The incident took place a day after three people were killed in a knife attack in the southeastern city of Nice. The motive for this incident was not immediately clear.
