Police in Paris killed a knife-wielding terror suspect who wore a fake explosive vest Thursday, as France marked one year after the deadly attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Police shot the unidentified man, who a police union official said was shouting "Allahu Akbar" as he tried to enter a police station in the northern portion of the city. Another police official said the man was carrying a butcher's knife.
