Security forces investigating the scene of the shooting say they found a note praising the Islamic State - which claimed responsibility for the attack - as well as scraps of paper with the addresses of security sites and police stations and a satchel containing weapons, munitions and the Muslim holy book in his vehicle. Two police officers were injured in the assault, one of whom remains in hospital.

The assailant - Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old French national with a long and violent criminal record.

Anti-terrorism prosecutor Francois Molins said during a news conference that the note apparently fell out of Cheurfi's pocket.

He served 14 years in prison for attempted murders, with two against police officers.

USA presidents typically avoid weighing in on specific candidates running in overseas election. "Will have a big effect on presidential election!"

Bloodshed had always been feared ahead of tomorrow's first round of voting after a string of terror atrocities since 2015, and shooting on the world-renowned boulevard forced security to the top of the agenda in the campaign.

Last night's shooting has pushed national security to the top of the political agenda in France.

He was arrested in February on suspicion of plotting to kill police officers but released because of a lack of evidence. Its president, Mickael Bucheron, told AP the slain officer would have celebrated his 38th birthday at the beginning of May. France bore its share of responsibility by discriminating against people living in poor suburbs because of "their skin colour or origins", taking military action in Africa and the Middle East and selling arms to dictatorships, he said. "To say "No" to terrorists", the media outlet quoted Jugele as saying.

Siniakova, Vandeweghe win; Czechs tie US in Fed Cup semis
On paper, the United States didn't seem to have much of a chance against the Czech Republic's dynastic Fed Cup team. The controversy in Romania overshadowed what was meant to be the weekend's main Fed Cup business - the semi-finals.

French interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said it was "too early to say" if the man was linked to Thursday's shooting.

The gunman - who ISIS claimed as one of their own - was then fatally shot while trying to flee on foot down the famous boulevard, police said.

"A pump action shotgun, ammunition, two kitchen knives and [shears] were found in the trunk" of Cheurfi's auto, he said.

Terrorism has also been a major campaign issue after a spate high-profile and deadly terror attacks in recent years.

If the opinion polls are accurate, Sunday's poll could lead to any two of the four leading candidates, ranging from the extreme left to the extreme right, qualifying for the May 7 decider.

By contrast, Emmanuel Macron, the popular independent candidate vying for the presidency, however, was quick to argue against any fearmongering.

Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve also confirmed Friday after a meeting of France's National Defense Council that pre-existing arrangements that 50,000 police and 7,000 military personnel would be deployed for security during this weekend's elections.

Polls in the dying days of the campaign put all the candidates roughly on between a fifth and a quarter of the vote, with around five percentage points or less separating them - threatening the margin of error for polling companies.

Scientists Take To Washington To Stress A Nonpartisan Agenda
"So we came out today to support science". "If you just go after what you want, you can achieve anything in science", she said. Lelah Marie, a former teacher from Philadelphia, said she has two daughters who are both working scientists.

"We are engaged in a long-term war", he said.

But, Lewis said, Obama "appreciated the opportunity to hear from Mr. Macron about his campaign and the important upcoming presidential election in France, a country that President Obama remains deeply committed to as a close ally of the United States, and as a leader on behalf of liberal values in Europe and around the world".

The attack appeared to fit in a spreading pattern of French extremists targeting security forces and symbols of the state, to discredit, take vengeance and destabilize.

Macron shot back on RTL Radio: "There's no such thing as zero risk..."

Investigators found a pump-action shotgun and knives in the auto of the gunman who targeted police on the Champs-Elysees, and were working to determine whether he had accomplices.

As Trump shows his indirect support with Le Pen, the White House made it clear that he is not endorsing her.

In an interview with Sky News diplomatic editor Dominic Waghorn, one wife said she wanted the government to "protect her husband".

France goes to the polls on Sunday April 23, 2017 in the first round of its presidential election. Therefore, I'm going to change my intention and I'm going to cast a useful vote.
