Paris, France – A man rammed a vehicle full of explosives into police van on Monday. The car exploded on impact, badly burning the driver who subsequently died.
This is the new normal in Paris.
Via Fox News:
A suspect who tried to attack security forces on the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris Monday afternoon — when he rammed his car into a police van — had a rifle and explosives in his vehicle, French investigators said.
The attacker died shortly after the incident, the French interior minister said. The attacker, a 33-year-old man, was badly burned after his car exploded when he deliberately crashed it into a police van. The police van caught fire, but it was quickly contained, officials said. The bomb squad was called to the scene.
Authorities discovered a gas tank and an AK-47 rife in the attacker’s car, Fox News confirmed. The man was known by police and was under surveillance, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the interior ministry, told Fox News.
