Knifeman kills Paris policeman and partner, Islamic State claims responsibility

A knifeman stabbed a French police chief to death in front of his Paris suburb home late on Monday and his partner’s body was found inside, officials said, killings the Islamic State’s Amaq news agency said were carried out by a “fighter” belonging to the militant group. The unidentified attacker repeatedly knifed the 42-year-old commander in the stomach before barricading himself inside the house, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed.
