One officer dead, two seriously injured in Paris shooting

Obama offers France's Macron luck, advice ahead of election

Obama offers France's Macron luck, advice ahead of election

France's anti-terrorism prosecutor says that searches are under way after an attack on police guarding the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris.

Earlier this week, two men were arrested in Marseille who police said had been planning an attack ahead of the election.

The Islamic State (ISIS) is claiming responsibility for the attack that took place at the famous tourist spot, Champs-Elysees in Paris, France. He said a auto pulled up next to a police vehicle at 9pm local time (8pm BST) and a man got out opening fire with an automatic weapon. Investigators found a pump-action shotgun and knives in his auto.

He says the assailant's identity has not been formally confirmed. The risk for the main candidates was that misjudging the public mood, making an ill-perceived gesture or comment, could damage their chances. With polling so close, and campaigning banned starting Friday at midnight, they would have no time to recover before voters cast ballots.

A French television station hosting an event with the 11 candidates running for president briefly interrupted its broadcast to report the shootings. In the final days of the campaign, she said she would halt immigration altogether if elected president. He was convicted in that attack and had a criminal record because of involvement in violent robberies, the source said.

The Islamic State reported through its Amaq news agency that the attacker was Abu Yusuf al-Beljiki, which was confirmed by the USA organization that monitors terrorists' activity online, SITE Intel Group. "This must be the priority", he said.

France has been plagued by terrorism since the horrific attacks of November 2015 that left 130 people dead and hundreds injured. Delivery trucks did their early morning rounds.

But he and his 16-year-old daughter Hailey took it in their stride.

US President Donald Trump condemned the shooting, saying: "It just never ends".

"Both of those characters want to get essentially, get out of the European Union and also weaken NATO", Dickey said.

"She won't be able to protect our citizens", Macron said of Le Pen.

A vehicle stopped at 102 Champs-Elysees, in front of a police van, ministry spokesman Pierre Henry Brandet said. A police source also said more shots had been fired at another location near the scene.

A massive police presence remained at the Champs Elysees long after the attacks.

"He wants to lead Muslims away from fundamentalism to security", she said. But Belgium's interior minister said the pseudonym did not belong to the attacker.

More were killed subsequently in attacks on a kosher market in eastern Paris and on police.

A machine gun, two handguns and over six pounds of TATP explosive were among the weapons found at a flat in the southern city along with jihadist propaganda materials according to the Paris prosecutor.
