The suspect arrested by police for attacking soldiers near the entrance to the Louvre museum in Paris on Friday has started to talk to investigators after initially refusing to speak, a judiciary source said on Tuesday.

“During a third hearing yesterday, the suspect accepted to start talking to investigators, giving his identity and exposing his first version of the facts,” a judiciary source told Reuters in a text message.
