Authorities were trying to determine if the attacker, who was arrested, is among the seven injured.

The man initially stabbed two men and a woman near the MK2 cinema on the quai de Loire, along the Ourcq canal, reports say.

There have been several knife attacks in France over the past few months, but few have resulted in terrorist investigations.

The man, who was reportedly carrying a knife and an iron bar, is said to have stabbed three people outside a cinema.

In May, a Chechnyan national attacked four people in Paris with a knife, killing one and injuring four.
