A man who frove a car into a police van on Paris's Champs-Elysees avenue on Monday is dead, France's interior minister said.

Gérard Collomb said the incident had been "an attempted terror attack".

A Kalashnikov rifle, handguns and gas bottles were found in the Renault Megane, police sources told the AFP news agency.

Collomb confirmed that the car contained guns and explosives, saying that the driver's aim was to  blow up the police vehicle.

Another attacker shot police officer Xavier Jugélé dead just before the first round of France's presidential election in April.
