Parents of Paris attacker held by police
The parents of the Paris knife attacker are being held for questioning by French police, according to a judicial source.

The attacker, who killed one person in a central Paris knife attack last night was born in 1997 in Chechnya, a source said.

The assailant shouted "Allahu akbar (God is greatest)," as he killed the passer-by in the attack and wounded four others before he was shot dead by police.

The source did not say what the attacker's nationality was, BFM TV said he was Russian.

France has been on high alert amid a series of attacks, commissioned or inspired by the so-called Islamic State militant group, that has killed more than 240 people since 2015.

France "will not yield an inch to the enemies of freedom, "President Emmanuel Macron said after the attack, praising officers for "neutralising the terrorist."
