    Paris knife attack: Seven injured, four seriously

    French police have detained a man who stabbed seven people, injuring four seriously, in an attack on tourists and passers-by in Paris.

    The man, wielding a knife and iron bar, struck just before 23:00 (21:00 GMT) by a canal in Paris's 19th district.

    People playing pétanque - a French bowling game - threw metal balls at the attacker, and he was overpowered.

    The man, said to be Afghan, was soon arrested. The incident is currently not being treated as a terrorist attack.

    A French police source said: "At this stage, there is nothing to indicate that it could be a terrorist attack."

    There have been several knife attacks in France over the past few months, but few have resulted in terrorist investigations.
    Those petanque balls weigh 600 to 800 grams each; being pelted by a bunch of those must be disconcerting.

    You could easily kill someone with a good throw.
