The French authorities have launched a counter-terrorism inquiry after a man wielding a knife attacked a soldier of Operation Sentinelle patrolling the Chatelet metro station in Paris.

Reports state that the man was not previously known to the police, and has been arrested.

France has been on terror alert after November 2015 and the soldier was from the Operation Sentinelle force assigned to protect prominent sites after deadly Islamic extremist attacks in recent years.

Operation Sentinel has been in operation since 2015 following the January 2015 terror attacks at the Charlie Hebdo office and Jewish Hypercache supermarket.

"This new attack legitimizes what we want to do", French Defense Minister Florence Parly told Europe 1.

The soldier quickly brought the man under control.

According to initial data, the French soldier was attacked by an unknown person armed with an arme blanche.

The soldier was unhurt in the incident. The suspect was arrested hours after the incident on a motorway in northern France.

Frances's armed forces minister say the soldier was not injured.

Two women were injured on Friday by an attacker wielding a hammer and shouting Allahu Akbar in the eastern French town of Chalon-sur-Saone in Burgundy, local officials said. Police later said on Twitter that the attacker had been "neutralized" and taken to hospital. The attacker detained by police. In April, a police officer was killed in a shooting on the Champs-Elysées.
