Jugele was among the officers who responded to the gun-and-bomb attack on Paris' Bataclan concert hall on November 13, 2015, among a wave of assaults in the French capital that killed 130 people, he told People.com.

One police officer is dead and another hurt following a shooting in the French capital, police sources say. The president remained silent when a white man shouted "get out of my country" at two Indian immigrants in Olathe, Kansas before opening fire and killing one of them. The attacker was shot and killed by officers at the scene. O., while specifying that the individual had presented himself at an Antwerp police station.

A handwritten note found near the gunman's body indicated allegiance to the Islamic State.

A deadly attack on a police bus in the heart of Paris has dramatically changed the course of the French presidential election campaign. The pair is believed be plotting imminent attacks on the French soil.

Thursday's shootings followed the arrest this week of two men in Marseille on suspicion of plotting an attack around Sunday's hotly contested first-round presidential vote, fueling France's worst fear: a terrorist attack as crowds gather at polling stations across the nation.

Conservative candidate Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Front, both talked up their tough law-and-order stances while centrist front-runner Emmanuel Macron stressed he was also up to the challenge.

Le Pen, widely seen as taking the hardest line on security, has called for France to "immediately" take back control of its own borders from the European Union and deport all foreigners on a terror watchlist. But for the past ten years, left-wing and right-wing governments have done everything they can for us to lose it.

"These officers were attacked because they were a symbol of the state".

Le Pen and Fillon canceled their last campaign events Friday over security concerns.

Cheurfi served 10 years in prison after firing on two plainclothes officers in 2001 as they tried to apprehend him in a stolen vehicle.

Police continued Saturday their probe as a clearer picture has emerged of Cheurfi's violent past.

"The policeman fell down".

The gunfire sent scores of tourists fleeing into side streets.

National police spokesman Jerome Bonet, also speaking on BFM television, said thousands of people were on Paris' iconic boulevard when the gunman opened fire and that the rapid response of officers who shot and killed him avoided possible "carnage".

The gunman who shot and killed a police officer on the Champs-Elysees in Paris was detained in February for threatening police and then freed.

A French interior ministry spokesman confirmed yesterday that a manhunt was underway for a second individual, based on information from Belgian security services.

"Once again all our thoughts are with the policeman who was assassinated, cowardly, savagely, in a despicable act, an act that shook up our country".

Although an anti-terror probe has been opened, other reports said the shooting could have been an attempt at an armed robbery.

"What our attackers want is death, symbolism, to sow panic (and) to disturb a democratic process", the 39-year-old former investment banker said. Trump's initial characterization of the event as a "terrorist attack" during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni came less than one hour before French authorities publicly announced their determination as to the shooter's motive. And what can you say? "It just never ends".

FN vice president Florian Philippot responded to Cazeneuve on Twitter, saying the prime minister should "have resigned a long time ago for his incoherence and lack of rigour".
