A French soldier shot and injured a man armed with a machete outside the Louvre museum in central Paris on Friday morning, according to the head of the Parisian police.
After the intended victim fought him off in hand-to-hand combat, more soldiers came to help, at which point five shots were fired at the attacker, leaving him seriously wounded. Visitors to the museum learned of the attack over loudspeaker and were ordered to sit, away from windows, until they were evacuated about an hour later.
The attack happened in the Carousel du Louvre underground shopping center near the museum, which was closed to the public within minutes of the attack being reported.
A French soldier is thought to have opened fire at a man who tried to enter the gallery with a knife.
Paris police chief Michel Cadot said that a lone man armed with a machete ran at military personnel and police stationed outside the museum, after which one soldier opened fire.
French authorities say al-Hamamy arrived in France on January 26 after obtaining a tourist visa in Dubai. "Allahu akbar" is the Arabic phrase for "God is great". One soldier had a minor scalp injury, said Cadot.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet says a second person was also arrested but it is unclear whether that person was linked to the attack.
