A couple shouting “Allahu Akbar” have attacked a charity boss armed with an axe and knife near Paris in France.

French police are investigating reports the 59-year-old director of the Restos du Coeur soup kitchen in Montreuil, east of Paris, was attacked at around 7.20am earlier this morning.

The attackers allegedly called him an “infidel dog” — both are now being hunted after fleeing from the scene.

The couple are said to have suddenly appeared on the soup kitchen premises and ‘for no apparent reason’ the male attacker — described as being of African origin – swung at him with the axe which the victim managed to dodge.

The woman — said to be wearing a veil with an open face — then dealt him “several stab wounds” to the stomach.

A police source confirmed the victim was allegedly stabbed by a couple carrying an axe and a knife and also shouting ‘God is Greatest’ in Arabic.
