An Islamic who recently was discharged from a psychiatric hospital is under investigation for terrorism after he brandished a knife and tried to breach security at the Eiffel Tower, French authorities said.
No one was hurt in the incident late Saturday, though the tower was briefly evacuated. The tower reopened as usual Sunday morning.
A French official said the terror crazed Islamic tried to force his way into the secure zone, held out a knife and said “Allahu akbar,” the Arabic phrase which is commonly heard before Islamics start killing people and blowing stuff up.
He was quickly surrounded by security forces and surrendered, the official said.
France remains on alert after the deadly Islamic attacks in 2015.
