Paris shooting casts shadow over final day of election campaign

Her political party used the social networks in an aggressive way, spreading a supposed photograph of the aggressor, using the death of the police agent as a matter of electoral propaganda, assuring that "things like that would not happen with Le Pen in the presidency".

The shooting came just three days before the first round of France's presidential election and there has been much speculation that increased security fears could drive voters either to far-right leader Ms Le Pen or centre-right candidate Francois Fillon.

In a somewhat eerie coincidence, the betting odds of either euro-skeptic candidate winning the presidency closely mirror those of the United Kingdom voting in favor of Brexit. He was convicted in that attack and had a criminal record because of involvement in violent robberies.

"There are probably, possible accomplices that need to be arrested which is why I won't give you additional details", he said.

If Melenchon makes it to the runoff, he is projected to beat both Le Pen and Fillon by comfortable margins although he is seen losing to Macron 41 percent to 59 percent. First, almost 1/3 of the French electorate is undecided - even just days before the election.

The attack comes at the height of French democracy, in the face of tightly divided elections, where the leading voice is the National Front, led by Marine Le Pen, who has used anti-Islamist and isolationist rhetoric to champion her candidacy.

She tweeted Tuesday that she would "expel from France all foreigners who have been found guilty of an offense or of a crime". Under French election rules, Friday was due to be the final day of campaigning before Sunday's first round of voting.

A man emerged from the vehicle and opened fire on the van with an "automatic weapon", killing one officer instantly, Brandet said.

An assault on a soldier in February at the Paris Louvre museum by a man wielding a machete also had no obvious impact on this year's opinion polls, which have consistently said that voters see unemployment and trustworthiness of politicians as bigger issues.

A policeman was shot in the head and killed by a Muslim attacker who was known to authorities as an Islamic radical. Also wounded was a female tourist. Yet during a White House news conference Thursday, the president said he believed in a strong Europe. Political campaigning was suspended following news of the attack.

British Prime Minister Theresa May also spoke to Hollande.

The Champs-Elysees shooting is the latest in a series of attacks by Islamist militants on France since 2015, in which more than 200 people have been killed.

Several posted messages branding the National Front leader France's "last hope" and another said: 'Another terrorist attack in Paris.

France has been in a state of emergency since the 2015 Paris attacks, which left 130 people dead. Parliament voted in December to extend the extraordinary provisions to ensure the protection of upcoming presidential and general elections.
