Shooting incident at Louvre in Paris per BBC News


'A French soldier on guard at the Louvre in Paris has opened fire on a suspected attacker, media reports say.

A man shouting "Allahu Akbar" is reported to have tried to attack the soldier with a knife and was seriously injured when the soldier responded.

The attacker is said to have been trying to enter the museum's underground shop.

A big security operation is under way and the interior ministry has described the situation as "serious".

The Louvre has been evacuated.

Details of the incident are still emerging.

A French police spokesman said the attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar" - God is great in Arabic - but was not carrying explosives.

Reports say the attacker was carrying one, possibly two suitcases.

Another says he wore a rucksack and carried a machete.'

How long before we hear the following phrases:
Lone wolf
Misunderstander of Islam
Mental health issues
Fear of Islamophobic backlash
