Gunman 'shouting Allahu Akbar' BEHEADS a man in northern Paris before being shot by police 

Gunman ‘shouting Allahu Akbar’ BEHEADS a man in Paris attack ‘motivated by cartoons of the Prophet’ before being shot dead by police

A suspected terrorist thought to be wearing an explosive vest has been shot dead by French police near Paris after allegedly beheading another man with a knife.

Local reports have suggested the attack was motivated by cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.

The first bloodbath took place in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a suburb some 25 miles from the centre of the French capital on Friday.

‘The body of decapitated man was found at around 5.30 in the afternoon,’ said an investigating source.

‘When police arrived, the person thought to be responsible was still present and threatened them with his weapons.’

The unidentified killer then fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, around two miles away, where he refused to surrender.

‘He was waving a gun by this time and further threatened officers,’ said the source. ‘This is when he was shot dead by police.. Around ten shots were heard.’

Agence France-Presse reported that the person was shot at around 5pm local time (4pm GMT) near a school. 

Anti-terrorist prosecutors immediately became investigating the incident, said the source, who said the attacker was being viewed as a ‘suspected terrorist’. 

It follows a wave of terrorist attacks across France – ones often carried out by ISIS and Al-Qaeda supporters armed with knives.
