France is on high alert. Police have shot a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris. The man shouted “this is for Syria” during the attack, the interior minister said. Prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation. The suspect was wounded in the chest when another policeman opened fire. Hundreds of people were in the cathedral at the time.
Never a day out of the news for Turkey as the US Congress has called for criminal charges against those involved in a fight outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence in Washington DC last month.

The club is valued at $3.69 billion despite its sixth place finish in the Premier League.
