French investigators Sunday began questioning a suspect in the attack on troops outside the Louvre Museum in Paris, but the man refused to speak, a judicial source said.




The suspect, believed to be an Egyptian national, was shot in the stomach and seriously wounded after lunging at soldiers with two machetes on Friday.


Investigators decided to question him in hospital after his condition improved, the source said.


The man “is refusing to speak to investigators for now”, the source added.
