The armed man wearing a fake suicide belt who was shot dead trying to attack a police station in Paris was carrying a letter where he pledged allegiance to ISIS.
The man had been trying to enter the police station in Barbes, northern Paris, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and threatening officers with a knife on the anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
He was carrying a mobile phone and a sheet of paper showing the black flag of ISIS, and claims of responsibility written in Arabic, the Paris prosecutor said in a statement.
‘A mobile phone and a piece of paper, on which appear the Daesh flag and a clear written claim in Arabic, were found on the individual,’ prosecutor Francois Molins said, referring to the Arabic acronym for ISIS.
French officials say the man was wearing a belt made out to look like a suicide vest, but a bomb-disposal unit has since confirmed that it was a fake.
Police have cleared hundreds of people from the neighborhood, an area where a significant percentage of residents have multi-ethnic or immigrant background, amid fears that other assailants could be at large.
‘The man did have a belt, but it was a fake. The bomb-disposal unit confirmed it was a fake,’ the police union source said.
A Paris police official said police are viewing the incident as ‘more likely terrorism’ than a standard criminal act.
