Attacker Wields Hammer in Notre Dame

Reuters news agency reports today that a man armed with a hammer shouted “this is for Syria” and wounded a policeman before being shot and wounded by other officers on Tuesday outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The Paris prosecutor’s office swiftly launched a counter-terrorism investigation into the attack. Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the attacker was carrying the identification card of an Algerian student and that preliminary information indicated he had acted alone.
