Apparently, a terror attack. And there are currently gun shots around Champs Elysées.

Reuters

Quote:
One policeman was killed and another wounded in a shooting incident in central Paris on Thursday night, a police source said.

A person who fired on police on the Champs-Elysees shopping boulevard just days ahead of France's presidential election has been killed, the source said. A police source also said there had been two assailants, and a witness told Reuters that one man got out of a car at the scene and began shooting with a machine gun.

My prayers to the victims and their families.

May there be no more victims from this and may there be a speedy apprehension of those responsible for this.

About time for an angry mob to seek retribution if you ask me.

Saw on the BBC news website that ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack.

The article further stated:

Quote:
Islamist militancy is a major issue in the polls after recent mass attacks claimed by IS, with 238 people killed in jihadist attacks in France since 2015, according to data from AFP news agency.

I wonder how much of a favour this has done for Le Pen.

I think that it certainly won't hurt her.
I seem to recall somewhere that the candidates have suspended their campaigning (and if I am not mistaken, I think that Election Day is this weekend???).

Quote:
... French prosecutor François Molins said the identity of the gunman is known and that investigators are trying to determine if he had accomplices.

A French Interior Ministry spokesman said it was too early to determine the motive behind the attack.

The ministry added that a search for explosives is now underway.

In a televised address following the attack, France’s President François Hollande said that all potential investigative leads pointed to the Champs Elysées shooting as 'terrorist in nature' ...
