A man who was shot dead by French police Thursday as he tried to attack a Paris police station was wearing a "fake" suicide vest, police and government sources said.

The man had a knife, while under his coat he had a pouch around his torso with a wire hanging from it, but the "apparatus contained no explosives," a judiciary source told AFP.
