Police unearthed a terrorist trail to attack the Terrorist group "Islamic state" has claimed responsibility for the attack in Paris.

Shortly before 9pm (1900 GMT) a knife-wielding attacker struck on Rue Monsigny, close to Place de L'Opera, an area of central Paris filled with restaurants, bars and tourist attractions.

The man attacked five people with a knife, one of whom died, police said.

One person was killed and two were seriously injured.

"France as soon as once more paid the worth of blood however didn't give an inch to the enemies of Freedom", Macron stated in one other tweet.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said counterterrorism authorities were investing the attack, adding that witnesses had reported the suspect shouted "Allahu Akbar" or "God is Greatest" in Arabic.

Many described scenes of panic as Parisians realised a potential terror attack was underway in a city that has been hit by multiple deadly jihadist assaults in recent years.

The attacker, who French President Emmanuel Macron called a terrorist, is dead, according to police.

The attacker struck in the second district, a retail and dining precinct that is also home to Paris's Opera. He turned onto another street, and everyone scattered, the witness said.

The interior minister, Gérard Collomb, hailed the "sangfroid" and quick response of police who shot the attacker.

Currently, the area of the scene completely cordoned off by police. "Then I went out to see what was going on, and then I saw a man on the ground", she added.

A wave of attacks, claimed by the Islamic State (IS), had broken several times the calm at home with the bloodiest was in Paris where a series of explosives and shootings left 130 victims in November of 2015. The alleged attacker was killed by police.

Paris police officers evacuated people from some buildings in the Right Bank neighbourhood after the attack. Meanwhile, local media has published a video showing people reportedly running from the mass stabbing attack.
