And now, on with our story...
An armed robber has been stabbed to death by a group of waiters in a busy Japanese restaurant in Paris.
Two men carrying a knife and an electronic stun gun stormed the Planet Sushi restaurant in the city's Latin Quarter on Sunday night, demanding money from the till.
But the team of Japanese staff turned on the men, stabbing one to death with a fish knife used for preparing sushi dishes, while the other was pinned to the ground outside the restaurant.
A witness said the restaurant was full when the men burst in.
"They pointed an stun gun at a waiter and demanded the cash from the till, but the staff grabbed kitchen knives and charged at the men," he said.
"They fled outside, chased by waiters, where one was stabbed and the other was held to the floor.
"It was like a moment from Tarantino's Kill Bill films."
Police, who arrived at the scene in rue Monge minutes later, said the stabbed robber, aged 22, died while being taken to hospital.
His accomplice, also 22, and seven Japanese staff have all being taken into custody for questionning, police said.
The bold is mine. The only question I would ask is, why bother to take the staff into custody? Give them all a medal for bravery and let them return to work.
OTT and being pedantic, note the errors in the last line of the article - this has been copy-pasted as is, and is evidence of serious decline in the editing standards of newspapers, in print and online.
