Developing: French policeman killed in reporter Paris shooting

Police have launched a terrorism investigation and the so-called Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The French interior ministry said it was too early to tell what the motive was for the attack in the Champs-Elysees but President Francois Hollande said he was convinced it was a terrorist attack.‌.

President Francois Hollande is to chair an emergency cabinet meeting on security to deal with the issue as the country goes to the polls for its next presidential election on Sunday.

US President Donald Trump said: 'It looks like another terrorist attack.

One police officer was killed and two others were wounded when a gunman opened fire on the Champs-Élysées on Thursday night.

The slain officer was 30 years old, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said. Trump said. "It just never ends". The charges dated back to 2001, when the attacker was fleeing from police in a stolen vehicle.

He had been convicted in 2005 of three counts of attempted murder, with two of these against police officers, sources said. Security was already ramped up because of a series of terror attacks in recent years, but perhaps even more so because of the election. Belgian security officials had warned French counterparts before the attack that El Osri was a "very risky individual en route to France" aboard a high-speed train.

French police tweeted, "Police intervention underway in the area of the #ChampsElysees avoid the sector and follow the instructions of the police forces".

No changes; George HW Bush still in Houston hospital
The former president has vascular parkinsonism, a symptom complex that shares similar ailments with Parkinson's Disease. McGrath said Bush "feels terrific", and Bush's vice president, Dan Quayle, talked with him by phone on Friday.

Belgium first came under the spotlight after investigators said several men based in Brussels plotted and carried out the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015, killing 130 people and wounding hundreds more.

The attacker was targeting police near the Franklin Roosevelt subway station, a police spokeswoman told the Associated Press.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told BFM television that a man stepped from a auto and opened fire on a police vehicle.

Security has been high in France since Tuesday, when police apprehended two men suspected of plotting an imminent terror attack.

The burst of violence and rush of police action left visitors bewildered, and saddened by the new reality of a steady threat of terror attacks in the French capital.

A police source told Reuters there had been two assailants, while a witness saw one man get out of a vehicle at the scene and begin shooting with a machine gun.

Authorities foiled an attack in the southern city of Marseille just a day before a campaign appearance by far-right leader Marine Le Pen.
