French police officials say the Louvre attacker is believed to be an Egyptian national.

Police union officials Yves Lefebvre and Luc Poignant say investigators have elements indicating that the attacker is an Egyptian. They were not able to provide more details on the identity of the man and the type of evidence that investigators have on him.

The man was shot by French soldiers after he attacked them Friday near the Louvre Museum in Paris and has been hospitalized.
