'GET SMART US' Trump tweets after Louvre Museum attack

Canadian police officers respond to a shooting in a mosque at the Québec City Islamic cultural center on Sainte Foy Street in Quebec city

French President Francois Hollande says there's "no doubt" that the attack was of a "terrorist nature".

Agence France Presse reports the soldier involved in the event shot a knife attacker, while French newspaper Le Figaro reports the assailant had attempted to pass the gates controlling access to the museum.

One soldier was slightly injured in the scalp, officials said.

One soldier fired a total of five shots, according to Cadot.

The French interior ministry said anti-terrorism prosecutors are investigating the attack but that there were still no details about the identity of the attacker.

A French soldier is thought to have opened fire at a man who tried to enter the world-famous museum with a suitcase - what else do we know?

He said that no explosives had been found in the man's baggage.

The suspect rushed toward a crowd of guards shouting "Allahu akbar", an Arabic term for "God is great", at about 10 a.m. local time, the Local reported.

Facebook's revenue jumped 54 per cent in 2016
Facebook said daily active users climbed 18%, to 1.23 billion, in December 2016, versus the year-ago period. Daily active users (DAU) reached 1.23 billion, an increase of 18 percent over the same time previous year .

"We are dealing with an attack from an individual who was clearly aggressive and represented a direct threat, and whose comments lead us to believe that he wished to carry out a terrorist incident".

One of the biggest tourist attractions in France was locked down Friday after a terrorist carrying two machetes tried to get in, and ended up in a battle with soldiers.

There were 250 people inside the museum at the time, the ministry tweeted.

Yesterday's incident came on the very day that Paris was submitting its formal bid dossier to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Exterminator Olivier Majewski said he was just leaving his scooter in the parking lot beneath the Louvre when he saw a crush of people running and screaming "there's been a terror attack".

Bid officials, however, claim Paris has the experience to organise and protect major events, often citing soccer's European Championship previous year as an example despite troubles caused by hooligans in Marseille and a deadly truck attack in Nice that killed 86 people four days after the tournament final.

The incident sparked fresh jitters in a country still reeling from a string of terror attacks over the last two years and under a state of emergency since November 2015.
