The incident took place at about 18:30 local time (16:30 GMT) in the suburb of Créteil and no-one was hurt.

The man was apparently thwarted by barriers put up to protect the mosque.

According to Le Parisien newspaper, the man said he had wanted to avenge attacks linked to ISIS that have killed dozens in Paris over the past years.

    Beveiligen met blokken kan dus wel. Uiteraard alleen bij haatpaleizen. Voor de “gewone” Fransman is dat natuurlijk veel te duur.
