An Algerian student shouted ‘this is for Syria’ as he attacked a police officer outside Paris‘s Notre Dame Cathedral on Tuesday afternoon.

The man, whose name has not been released, was shot and injured by police after he used a hammer to attack an officer patrolling with two other policemen at 4.30pm local time.

The officer responded with two gunshots, which injured the assailant, who was carrying kitchen knives, a hammer and other unsophisticated weapons.

Paris prosecutors opened a counterterrorism investigation soon after the attack.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb says the attacker cried ‘it’s for Syria’ as he went after officers patrolling an esplanade in front of the famous landmark.
