Man Rams Car Into Police Van on Champs-Elysee in Paris

Motive unknown, but a #KnownWolf

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 Gerard Collomb said. The attacker, a 31-year-old man from the Paris suburb of Argenteuil, 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 had been flagged by investigators earlier for extremism, French police said.

Last night, of course, a van was driven into a crowd exiting the notorious Finsbury Mosque in London.

One person was killed, ten injured.

The vehicular attack took place as the notorious Finsbury Mosque, and several others, were letting out worshippers.
