French minister says that a man was “neutralized” after he attacked several people at Paris’s train station.
Gerald Darmanin, Interior Minister, confirmed that a man had hurt several people at Gare du Nord this morning.
French media quoted unnamed sources from police who said that officers opened fire on the attacker while he was armed with knives.
BFM TV, the broadcaster, stated that six people were injured in the attack.
According to rail operator SNCF, the attack occurred at 6.40am GMT.
The station continued to function normally despite the fact that a security perimeter was in place.
The Gare du Nord, which links Paris to London and the northern part of Europe, is one of Europe’s busiest train stations.
This attack occurs a month after three victims were killed, and three others were injured when a gunman opened fire on a Kurdish cultural center in Paris.
