The Paris machete attack, also know as the Louvre knife attack or the variants, was an incident on 3 February 2017 when a man shouting “Allahu Akbar”[1] and carrying a machete was shot as he rushed towards a group of French soldiers patrolling outside the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. A soldier responded by shooting the attacker.

The presumed attacker was carrying two bags and soldiers guarding the Museum judged him to represent a direct threat of terrorism.The attacker was attempting to enter the Louvre underground shopping center, when a soldier on security patrol fired five shots, injuring the attacker, who was arrested and immediately taken for medical treatment.

It is revealed that the attacker has been identified as Egyptian national Abdullah Reda al-Hamamy who had entered the country on a one-month tourist visa issued in Dubai on 26 January.

Kellyanne Conway, the adviser to President Trump who coined the phrase “alternative facts,” is facing another round of criticism and fact-checking after she falsely spoke of a “Bowling Green massacre” by Iraqi refugees. She acknowledged and corrected her statement Friday morning on Twitter.

The Bowling Green massacre is a fictitious incident referred to by Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway. Conway cited the “massacre” in a February 2, 2017 interview on the television news program Hardball with Chris Matthews as justification for a travel and immigration ban enacted by United States President Donald Trump The “massacre” was described by Conway as an attack that occurred within the United States by terrorists who pretended to be refugees. Conway said:

I bet, there was very little coverage‍—‌I bet it’s brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized‍—‌and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. I mean, most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.

The next morning, she said she misspoke and that she meant to use the term “Bowling Green terrorists” instead[3] but did not address the issue of the alleged six-month ban
