A suspect was arrested after killing one person and injuring another in an ambush attack near the Eiffel Tower on Saturday, according to a post by Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin on X.
“Police have just bravely arrested an assailant who attacked passers-by in Paris, around the Quai de Grenelle. One dead and one injured are being treated by the Paris Fire Department. Avoid the area,” Darmanin posted.
The suspect reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar,” AFP reported, citing a source, but Fox News Digital could not confirm this.
