Paris (AFP) - A French police officer shot and injured a man who attacked him with a hammer outside Paris's Notre-Dame cathedral on Tuesday, authorities said.

Police sealed off the area in front of the cathedral, where the attacker lay injured on the ground.

The attack comes with France on high alert for more jihadist strikes after a weekend attack in London, where extremists used a van and knives to crush to death and kill seven people, one of them French.

Authorities in Paris asked the public to stay away from Notre-Dame, one of France's biggest tourist attractions situated on the banks of the Seine river in the heart of the capital.

French TV reported scenes of panic during the shooting, with tourists scrambling for cover.

France is under a state of emergency and on its highest possible level of alert following a string of terror attacks that began in 2015, which have killed over 230 people.

In the last fatal attack, a policeman was shot and killed on Paris's prestigious Champs-Elysees avenue on April 20, three days before the first round of the presidential election.

Major attacks in France targeted the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in January 2015 and in November that year, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked sites around Paris including the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people.

Then in July last year, a radicalised Tunisian man drove a lorry at high speed through a Bastille Day fireworks display on the Nice waterfront, massacring 86 people.

Since then there have been a series of smaller attacks, often targeting security forces.

I presume he saw helicopters dumping buckets on a forest fire in a cartoon or something.

Trump is a forward thinker. Thinking of things others would never think of is part of his genius.

Right. So a lot smarter thing to do would be to just let it burn......right?

I mean......don't try to fight it from above and below with available technology. Just let that fu**er burn to the ground.

How can anyone be so stupid as to think that pouring water or retardants on it from above could possibly help?

Is there really an American who doesn't know this is a real thing? Other than the press, I mean.

Oh, they exist alright. They're used on wild fires. Not structure fires.

Trying to measure up to Trump, are we?

There's probably more truth in this than you'd like to think............

They also have helicopters that carry water tanks/bladders, etc. that are used for large structure fires quite regularly.

But, of course, orange man bad!
