Jihad knifer killed at French police station

An incident similar to various ones in Israel of recent took place in Paris:
Officers shot and killed a knife-wielding man wearing a fake explosives vest outside a police station in northern Paris on Thursday, French officials said, a year to the day since an attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo launched a bloody year in the French capital.

France has been under a state of emergency since a series of attacks claimed by the Islamic State group killed 130 people in Paris on Nov. 13, and tensions increased this week as the anniversary of the January attacks approached. Soldiers were posted in front of schools and security forces were even more present than usual amid a series of tributes to the dead.

Officials said the man shot to death Thursday wore a fake explosive vest and threatened officers at the entrance of a police station minutes after French president Francois Hollande, speaking in a different location, paid respects to officers fallen in the line of duty.

Pierre-Henry Brandet, the Interior Ministry spokesman, said the man at the police station is believed to have cried out "Allahu akbar," Arabic for "God is great." He has not been identified, and Brandet told The Associated Press that police do not believe anyone else was involved.
Which makes it a "lone wolf" jihad attack.
Alexis Mukenge, who saw the shooting from inside another building, told the network iTele that police told the man, "Stop. Move back." Mukenge said officers fired twice and the man immediately dropped to the ground.

The Goutte d'Or neighborhood in Paris' 18th arrondissement, a multi-ethnic district not far from the Gare du Nord train station, was locked down, as were two metro lines running through the area, though they later reopened.

Police expanded their security cordon about an hour after the attack, swiftly and roughly clearing out hundreds who had gathered at a subway station and along nearby streets. Shops were ordered shuttered along neighboring streets, and shop owners hastily rolled down metal shutters.

Neighborhood resident Nora Borrias was unable to get home because of the barricades. Shaken by the incident, she said "it's like the Charlie Hebdo affair isn't over."
It's not. It won't be for a long time. It's lucky the explosives belt wasn't real, but next time, it definitely could be.
