French minister: Attack threat still very high after police attack

A person is seen on the ground as a police officer is seen in the foreground on the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris France Monday

In April, a man shot at police officers on the Champs-Elysees, killing one officer and wounding two others.

Collomb said said he will present a bill on Wednesday at a Cabinet meeting to extend the state of emergency from July 15, its current expiration date, until November 1.

The bomb squad arrived at the scene and an explosives-detecting robot has been pictured inspecting the attacker's dead body.

The attacker died shortly after the incident, the French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said.

The attacker was a 31-year-old man from a Paris suburb who had been flagged for extremism, police officials said.

Tomorrow, the French government is to unveil a new anti-terrorism law, created to allow the state of emergency to be lifted.

On Monday, police cordoned off a broad swath of the Champs-Elysees after the latest incident, warning people to avoid the area.

Visitors to a nearby Auguste Rodin exhibit were confined inside the Grand Palais exhibit hall for an hour after the incident.

France is still under a state of emergency after several deadly Islamic extremist attacks.

Two metro stations on the Champs-Elysees, one of the city's most popular neighbourhoods for tourists, have been closed.

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

The local mayor Sylvain Tanguy said the family was "very discreet and didn't go out much". It was the second major incident on the avenue this year. The collision was a deliberate act'. The man died even though police were able to extricate him from the burning auto.

The French national gendarmerie service says the driver of a auto that rammed a law enforcement vehicle has been arrested.

Earlier this month, an attacker went after a police patrol with a hammer in front of Notre Dame Cathedral.

A man could be seen lying on his stomach on the ground immediately after the incident, wearing a white shirt and dark shorts.

Police later found other weapons in Cheurfi's vehicle including a shotgun and knives.

Police forces secure the area on the Champs Elysées in Paris, Monday, June 19, 2017.

The reason for the operation remains unclear.

The Minister said the security threat to France remained "at its highest level" and that he would be ensuring that the State of Emergency "remains in place permanently for the foreseeable future".
