Latest stories French Soldier Stabbed In The Neck In Paris survives

Police in France have said the stabbing of a uniformed soldier in Paris may have been inspired by the murder of British soldier Drummer Lee Rigby in London.

The 23-year-old French soldier, Cedric Cordier, was in a busy underground train station in the west of the city when he was stabbed in the throat by a man believed to be of North African origin at around 6pm on Saturday.

French President Francois Hollande said the attacked could not "at this stage" be linked to the murder of Drummer Rigby last Wednesday.

He added: "We still do not know the exact circumstances of the attack or the identity of the attacker, but we are looking at all options."
