PARIS ATTACKS. A placard reading "the Louvre museum will not be open today" is displayed at the entrance of the Louvre museum in Paris, on February 3, 2017, after a French soldier patrolling at the Louvre shot and seriously injured a machete-wielding attacker earlier. The man wielded a machete and shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest") as he lunged at soldiers patrolling outside the Louvre, home to the Mona Lisa and one of the world's most-visited museums. Security forces described the attacker as being in a serious condition while one soldier suffered a minor head wound. A second machete, along with cans of spray paint were found in the man's backpack.GEOFFROY VAN DER HASSELT / AFP
