Vehicle containing explosives rams into police van on Champs Elysees in Paris

Vehicle containing explosives rams into police van on Champs Elysees in Paris”

A driver who rammed a auto carrying explosives into a police convoy on the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris has died after the "attempted attack" on security forces, France's interior minister said.

A judicial source said investigators were compiling an inventory of the arms and equipment found in the 31-year-old's home.

Two police officials told The Associated Press that a handgun was found on the driver, who they said was badly burned after the vehicle exploded.

Under pressure to muscle security at home and forge an effective action plan against alarming terror risks, President Emmanuel Macron chose to create the National Center for Counter Terrorism, a new body including all the country's intelligences services to better coordinate response to eventual terror risk. The man was from a suburb in Paris and had been previusly flagged for extremism, French police said.

A auto exploded as it crashed into a police vehicle on Paris's famed Champs Élysées on Monday, fatally wounding its driver, in what authorities called a probable terrorist attack.

The Paris incident came hours after a van plowed into worshippers near a London mosque, injuring 10 people.

So far no one has claimed responsibility for this possible attack, but this shows that France is still under a terror threat.

France is under a state of emergency following a string of terror attacks since 2015.

Police broke into the auto and pulled the driver out.

France has been under a state of emergency since the November 2015 attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris.

Adam Djaziri, a 31-year-old who had been on a watchlist for radical Islamists since 2015, was killed yesterday as his vehicle loaded with a gas canister smashed into the van on the French capital's most famous avenue.

"Security forces have been targeted in France once again", Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said, adding that the situation is now under control.

Four suspects were detained overnight in the anti-terrorism probe into Monday's attack, the Paris prosecutor's office announced.

Dzaziri was killed in yesterday's attack, but there were no other casualties.

The latest attack came two days before the French government is to unveil a new anti-terrorism law, created to allow the state of emergency to be lifted.
