Police said the area had been evacuated. The interior ministry said on twitter the incident was "serious". A spokewoman for Louvre said the museum was "closed for the moment" but would not confirm reports it had been evacuated. A Reuters witness at the scene said police had cordoned off access to the museum.
Details of the incident are still emerging. A French police spokesman said the attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar" - God is great in Arabic - but was not carrying explosives.
“The man is on the ground and is not moving,” one police source told Le Parisien newspaper. Some reports said he had been killed.
