PARIS, Feb 17 ― Paris police shot dead a man who threatened them early today with a meat cleaver, prosecutors said, adding that they opened fire after using a Taser.

The man was born in 1984 in Sudan and had no criminal record, they said, adding that two investigations had been launched over the man's action and the police response.

He was wearing an Arab-style robe and brandished a meat cleaver and carried a notebook with Arabic writing at a tram stop in eastern Paris.
