I can’t believe they were able to get so close to the soldiers, without being shot.

A man with a knife has attacked three soldiers patrolling outside a Jewish community centre in Nice, in the south of France.

Two soldiers were lightly wounded. The assailant was arrested, police say.

The attack happened in central Nice. Two people who were with the assailant fled the scene, reports say.

France has been on high alert since last month’s terror attacks in the Paris region by three Islamist gunmen, in which 17 were killed.
