(CNN)French authorities have opened a terror investigation after a soldier shot a man wielding a machete near the Louvre museum in Paris.

The man had rushed toward a group of soldiers and guards in the Carrousel du Louvre, the underground plaza adjoining the museum, according to Paris police Chief Michel Cadot. Wielding the weapon, the man shouted “Allahu akbar,” Cadot said. The Arabic phrase translates to “God is greatest.”
