The Paris police stated the attacker was subdued by officers through the stabbing assault within the 2nd arrondissement or district of the French capital Saturday.

The Aamaq news agency said in a statement early Sunday that the assailant carried out the Saturday night attack in response to the Islamic State group's calls for supporters to target members of the USA -led military coalition squeezing the extremists out of Iraq and Syria.

France's interior minister, Gerard Collomb, identified the person killed as a 29-year-old man.

Later in the evening the IS group said it was behind the attack, in a brief statement posted on its news outlet.

The man is said to have attacked five people. "She is recovering. She was operated on and saved", he said after visiting the victims in hospital.
