A suspected assassin has been caught trying to break into Nicolas Sarkozy’s presidential palace in Paris.

The 25-year-old intruder was wrestled to the ground as he tried to slip past guards at the main entrance of the Elysee Palace on Monday afternoon.

A police official said the man was searched at the scene and found to be armed with a
knife and a Taser-type weapon that fires high-voltage electric darts.
