Two people have been killed after a knife attack in a suburb of Paris.

French authorities say it happened in the town of Trappes, which is near Versailles to the west of the city.

One other person has been seriously wounded in the attack.

French police say the attacker has been 'neutralised' and is now dead.

Islamic State has claimed it was behind the attack but authorities say there's no proof of this and it's not currently being treated as a terrorist incident.
