Washington: President Donald Trump says that a "new radical Islamic terrorist" is behind an attack outside the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Trump tweeted early on Friday that America needs to "get smart," in light of the incident.
He writes, "a new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again."
A knife-wielding man shouting "Allahu akbar", "God is Great," in Arabic attacked French soldiers on patrol near the museum on Friday in what officials described as a suspected terror attack.
The soldiers first tried to fight off the attacker and then opened fire, shooting him five times. There were no immediate details about the identity of the suspect.
