After the bombing that killed on Thursday evening a police officer in the heart of Paris, on the famous Champs-Elysées, the investigators continued Friday their investigation, two days before the first round of a presidential placed under high surveillance because of the threat of jihadi.
François Hollande has “summoned” a council of defence on Friday at 8: 00 a.m., the following Thursday evening of a crisis meeting during which the Head of State met with the Prime minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, and the ministers of the Interior and Justice, Matthias Fekl, and Jean-Jacques Urvoas. In the course of this shooting, two other police officers were wounded, one seriously, while a tourist was more “lightly” hit by a bullet, according to authorities.
The assailant was shot dead by the police. The attack, which took place around 21: 00, was almost immediately claimed by the group jihadist islamic State (EI), the origin of the most attacks, sometimes mass, which have been 238 deaths since 2015 in France.
