French police have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with a knife attack on a soldier near Paris on Saturday, officials say.

The suspect was detained on Wednesday morning in the Yvelines region, 45km (28 miles) southwest of the capital, Interior Minister Manuel Valls said.

The "dangerous" man was traced thanks to evidence at the scene, he added.
