Police in Paris on Thursday shot dead a knife-wielding man who tried to enter a police station, police union sources said.

The incident took place on the anniversary of last year's deadly Islamist militant attacks on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in the French capital.

One of the sources said the man appeared to be wearing a belt of some sort, but could not say whether it was an explosive one.
