PARIS (Reuters) - At least one person was stabbed to death and another seriously wounded at Marseille's main train station in southern France on Sunday, police sources said, in what one of them said was a "terrorist act".

The police also confirmed earlier reports that the attacker had been shot and killed.

One police source said the man had cried out "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great in Arabic) before attacking the two people.
