French police shoot attacker outside Notre Dame in Paris - Yahoo News
Yahoo News reports: "French police shot and injured a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside Paris's Notre Dame cathedral Tuesday, as he shouted 'this is for Syria'. Police sources said the officer sustained minor neck injuries in the assault, which comes with France on high alert after jihadists killed seven people in London on Saturday. Documents found on the attacker identified him as a 40-year-old Algerian who was a doctoral student in information science at a university in the east of France. The suspect later claimed to be a 'soldier of the caliphate' of the Islamic State group, according to a source close to the investigation."

Comment: Another day, another attack. Apparently the Islamic State put out a call for attacks using any means at hand and in this case, that meant a hammer.  Guess we'll have to monitor hardware stores now. See something, say something. Suspicious person with a staple gun?
