A knifeman who killed one person and wounded four others in a suspected terror attack in central Paris was born in Chechnya in 1997, a judicial source said on Sunday.

The parents of the attacker have been taken into custody, the source added.Daesh terrorist group has claimed the responsibility of the knife attack in which a person stabbed five people in Paris late on Saturday, city prosecutor François Molins said.

A man randomly attacked bystanders with a knife on Saturday night in central Paris. One victim died and two were seriously injured and two were wounded lightly.

The knife attacker, who French President Emmanuel Macron called a terrorist, is dead.

The incident took place in Opera district of central Paris and the site was about 400 metres away from Paris Opera House, reports Xinhua.
