Paris (AFP) - A car loaded with gas canisters rammed into a police van on the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris on Monday, leaving the driver dead in what the interior minister said was an attempted attack.
Police sources told AFP that a Kalashnikov rifle, handguns and gas bottles were found in the white Renault Megane.
Video showed orange smoke pouring from the car after the impact as the vehicle sat in the middle of the prestigious avenue which is lined with shops and cinemas.

Anyone remember that song?
I was just watching local news on the CBS affiliate in Dothan, AL.

I hate the media with a passion. WTH does skin color have to do with i? Anybody can be a Muslim. It’s not a race of people.
You had a chance for a 2nd Joan D'Arc.
