Paris Attack
Paris-Masked police stand on top of their vehicle on the Champs Elysees Avenue after a police officer was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting incident on April 20. The attack comes days before presidential elections and was quickly claimed by the Islamic State militant group. President Francois Hollande said he was convinced the "cowardly killing" on the Champs Elysees boulevard, in which the assailant was himself shot dead by police, was an act of terrorism. The wide avenue that leads away from the Arc de Triomphe had been crowded with Parisians and tourists enjoying a spring evening, but police quickly cleared the area, which remained empty well into the night of all but heavily armed security forces and police vehicles.
