Seven people, including two British tourists, were wounded in Paris on Sunday when they were attacked by a man armed with a knife and an iron bar, according to police and other sources.

"Nothing at this stage shows signs of terrorist nature in these assaults," said a source close to the investigation, adding that the suspect has been arrested and is believed to be an Afghan citizen.

A man is now in police custody, say French judicial sources.

There is no initial sign that the attack is related to terrorism, sources say.

More to come.
