Police have “neutralised” a man who stabbed six people in Paris, local reports have said. A police source told journalists an officer had used their weapon towards the knife-wielding man at the Paris train station Gare du Nord.
The attack took place at 6.45am this morning (Wednesday 11 January) in the station.
The reason for the attack is currently unknown.
Police reportedly subdued the man by injuring him with a bullet, a source told the publication Le Parisien.
French rail company SNCF reported: “The emergency services intervened and the person evacuated. A security perimeter has been established but the station continues to operate normally”.
Traffic will be disrupted because of the attack.
The attack follows a shooting that left three dead and three wounded near Gare du Nore last month.
A “far-right racist” ex-train driver was arrested after he “blindly” fired a gun in the capital, causing “total panic” on Paris streets.

The facility is in a popular part of the city, also close to Gare du Nore.
