A British man was one of two who was injured in an attack in central Paris in which a German citizen died.

The attack occurred near the Eiffel Tower shortly before 21:00 local time.

France’s Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said the victim was with his wife when he was attacked and fatally stabbed on Quai de Grenelle, the BBC reports.

The Minister said the man’s wife’s life was saved by the intervention of a taxi driver and that the suspect fled across a nearby bridge spanning the River Seine.

After crossing to the north side of the river he attacked two more people: a French man aged around 60 and a 66-year-old British tourist who was hit in the eye with a hammer.

A 26-year-old French man was later arrested.
