Paris knife attack: Four dead in Paris police HQ stabbing

Three officers and an administrative assistant were stabbed to death at Paris police headquarters by an employee who went on a rampage after evading security with a ceramic knife.

The 45-year old, named by local media as Mickaël H, had worked for 20 years in the IT department of the police intelligence section in offices in Paris’ central île de la Cité, a stone’s throw from Notre Dame cathedral.

He was shot dead at the scene after killing three men and a woman.

Police sources said the assailant, who reportedly converted to Islam 18 months ago, was \"in conflict\" with his superiors. Police last night said they had not determined a terror link.
