And French cops have launched a huge manhunt for the armed gunman who fled after the attack in Lyon at 4pm local time.

The gunman is thought to be a man in his 40s.

A security boundary was put up as the Interior Minister warned the public to stay away.

The victim, who is Greek, was treated on-site for life-threatening injuries and is now in hospital.

It comes after this week’s terror attack at a Catholic church in Nice, south of France.

Two people were beheaded and another woman was stabbed to death.

It is not yet clear if today’s attack is terror-related.

France was put on the highest state of alert following Thursday’s attack and 4,000 soldiers were deployed to protect sites including places of worship and schools.

Emmanuel Macron faced a furious backlash for defending satirical cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed and the Muslims who revere him.

The French President declared the country “under attack” as the Government warned more terrorist attacks were likely.

He said on Thursday’s visit to Nice: “We won’t give in. Once again, our country has been hit by an Islamist terrorist attack.

“Once again, this morning, it was three of our compatriots who fell, in Nice, in this basilica. Very clearly, it is France that is under attack.”
