PARIS, May 17 — French police in Rouen shot dead an armed man who set fire to the city’s synagogue, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin and local officials said on Friday.

The incident occurred in central Rouen, 130 kilometres (80.78 miles) northwest of Paris, early on Friday morning, Darmanin said in a post on social network X.

The attacker’s identity and motive were still unclear. He was carrying a knife and iron bar, according to local authorities.
