French police shot dead a man reportedly wearing an explosive vest after he tried to stab a number of people in the Paris suburb of Villejuif, local media said.

BFTV said the attacker died shortly after he was shot. AFP reported that one victim had been killed and another two injured.

The number two at the interior ministry, Laurent Nunez, travelled to the scene of the stabbings accompanied by Paris police chief Didier Lallement.

The attacker's motive is not clear.

Local mayor, Vincent Jeanbrun, told broadcaster BFMTV that the attacker assaulted people in a park in Villejuif, then fled to a shopping center in his area, L'Hay-les-Roses, and was shot by police there.

Police union official Yves Lefebvre said officers fired repeatedly because they feared the man was wearing an explosive belt and might blow himself up.
