4. Paris knife attack: Suspect 'born in Russia's Chechnya'

 

The suspect in a deadly knife attack in central Paris on Saturday evening was born in 1997 in the Russian republic of Chechnya, a judicial source says.

He was also on a French watch list of people who could pose a threat to national security, other sources said.

The attacker killed a 29-year-old man and wounded four other people in the busy Opéra district before being shot dead by police.

The Islamic State (IS) group said it was behind the attack.
