Driver dies after ramming auto with explosives into Paris convoy

A man on the radar of French authorities for extremism was killed Monday after ramming a auto carrying arms and explosives into a police convoy on Paris' famed Champs-Elysees Avenue, setting off a fiery blast and a cloud of orange smoke, officials said. Weapons and explosives were found inside the vehicle.
French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, meanwhile, told reporters there were enough explosives in the vehicle "to allow him to blow up this auto..."
Paris police said neither gendarmes nor passersby were injured.
No police officers or passers-by were hurt in the incident Monday afternoon, the Paris police department said.
In late April, before the first round of voting in France's presidential election, there was a similar incident on the Champs-Elysees, when a man opened fire on police parked on the street, killing one and wounding two. Brandet said the attacker appeared to have acted deliberately.
The alleged assailant chased down the leading vehicle of a police squadron in a small white car and, according toCNN, the car contained so many explosives that the car burst into flames shortly after the collision.
"This is being treated as a terrorist incident and is being investigated by the Counter Terrorism Command", said Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu. "This shows once again that the terror threat level in France is high".
