ChampsElysees attacker ‘most probably’ dead French official


The driver whose car exploded as he tried to ram a police vehicle on Paris’ famed Champs-Elysees on Monday is “most probably” dead, a French security official said.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said bomb squads were still securing the scene.

He said the attacker appeared to have acted deliberately.

Police had earlier warned people to avoid the neighborhood, one of the French capital’s most popular with tourists. Paris police said neither gendarmes nor passers-by were injured.
