Yet another Muslim terrorist attack has been carried out in the Western world. This time the attack happened at the Louvre in Paris, France.

From CNN:

French authorities have opened a terror investigation after a solider shot a man wielding a machete near the Louvre museum in Paris.

The man had rushed towards a group of soldiers and guards in the Carrousel du Louvre, the underground plaza adjoining the museum, according to Paris police chief Michel Cadot. Wielding the weapon, the man shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest), Cadot said.

The soldier fired five shots in response.

 

From Fox News:

French President Francois Hollande said it was “no doubt” an act of terror. One of the soldiers suffered minor injuries, and the attacker — shot five times in the stomach — was gravely wounded. A military spokesman said the soldiers tried to fight him off before opening fire.

“He is wounded in the stomach,” police chief Michel Cadot said. “He is conscious and he was moving.”

The four soldiers first tried to fight off the attacker before opening fire, said Benoit Brulon, a spokesman for the military force that patrols Paris and its major tourist attractions. President Francois Hollande praised the troops’ “courage and determination.”

Anti-terrorism prosecutors took charge of the investigation. There were no immediate details about the identity of the attacker. “Allahu akbar” is the Arabic phrase for “God is great.”

Reuters reminds us of the stakes, as France has suffered more death at the hands of radical Islam than most other Western nations:

More than 230 people have died in France in the past two years at the hands of attackers allied to the militant Islamist group Islamic State.

President Trump added his two cents when he connected the attack to government policy.
