Paris Police Stop Attacker On Charlie Hebdo Anniversary

Police shot and killed a man wearing a fake explosive vest who threatened them with a butcher knife at a Paris police station Thursday, a year almost to the minute after two Islamic extremists burst into the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and unleashing a bloody 12 months in the French capital.

The Paris prosecutor’s anti-terrorism unit opened an investigation after police found a cell phone, and a piece of paper with an emblem of the Islamic State group, and a written claim of responsibility. Details about the claim were not provided.
