On the anniversary of the Charlie Hedbo attacks, a cleaver-style knife weilding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” was shot and killed by police attempting to enter a northern Paris police station.

The attempted attack close to the police station in Goutte D’Or in Barbes took place on the one year anniversary of the first terrorist attack in the French capital known as the Charlie Hedbo killings.

In that tragedy, two gunman entered the French gonzo-journalism magazine, killing twelve people for the publication’s propaganda against Islam and the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

With Parisians already paranoid on a highly sensitive anniversary, wondered as to whether the attacker was a “one off” terrorist, a disturbed individual or possibly the first wave of the kind of coordinated attacks that struck in November.
