Police arrested a knife-wielding man wearing a Paris Saint-Germain football shirt after he tried to breach security at the Eiffel Tower last night.
The man, who is aged around 19 and has a history of psychological problems, forced his way past security guards and then shouted 'Allahu Akbar', a legal source said.
Soldiers who are permanently stationed at the Eiffel Tower ordered him to drop his weapon, which he did without attacking anyone, the source added.
The monument, which was lit up to celebrate Paris St Germain football team signing Brazilian footballer Neymar, was evacuated at around 12.30am.
