RT News - February 3, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

A potential act of terror is being investigated in France after a machete-wielding man attacked officers close to the Louvre. The assailant was reportedly heard shouting 'God is Greatest' in Arabic. French President Francois Hollande warns Donald Trump not to meddle in the EU's internal affairs, saying his country has a strong defence policy, and that it's not dependent on its allies. At a summit in Malta, EU leaders forge a plan to stem the flow of migrants from North Africa, while simultaneously attacking Donald Trump's immigration ban. And, Britain's defence secretary lashes out at Russia, claiming it deliberately lies and that its intervention in Syria has not primarily been about targeting Islamic State.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.

You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,
