People running, body lying on floor after Paris stabbing
Video obtained by Reuters posted on social media moments after a knife attack in Paris on Saturday (May 12) purports to show people standing near the body of a wounded man on Rue Marsollier street.

The video shows people running past the body and a man dressed in black running on a street parallel to the street with the body.

The attacker stabbed and killed at least one person and injured four others before being shot dead by police, French authorities said.

France has been on high alert as a series of attacks commissioned or inspired by Islamic State have hit the country over the past three years in which dozens of people have been killed.
