A man reportedly shouting “Allah Akbar “ and wearing a fake explosives belt has been shot dead outside a police station in Paris - a year after the jihadist massacre at Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The man attacked and slighty injured a policeman outside the station in the Goutte d’Or district in northern Paris.

A police source said his colleagues had opened fire when the attacker appeared to put his hand to his jacket.

A wire protruded from the jacket and was connected to a package taped to the inner lining.

“Upon examination, it was found that the package contained no explosives,” the source said.

Police rubbished a report, circulated by the Twitter feed of a bogus journalist, that the attacker was Salah Abdeslam, the missing survivor of the jihadist death squad which attacked Paris on 13 November.

he body of  a bald man, wearing blue jeans and a grey flak jacket, lay on the pavment outside the police station for more than an hour after the shooting.

A small robot camera on wheels was sent out from the station to examine the body and the apparent explosives belt. Experts finally arrived and decided that it was fake.
