Egypt’s interior ministry has received confirmation from the country’s embassy in Paris that the machete-wielding man suspected of attacking a soldier at the Louvre museum on Friday is Egyptian, two Egyptian security sources told Reuters.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to speak to the media, said they are waiting to receive further information before beginning an investigation.

The Paris attacker was shot and wounded.
