    Champs Elysee which features what is said to be a gas canister at the front of the image:

    was deliberate


    Don't know -- it is The Sun so I don't know !!

    the car sure did not look blown up to me !!

    AFP has reported that witnesses say the suspect's car "exploded" on impact with the van and that the driver was "armed."
    Police said earlier that the driver was "on the ground... unconscious" and judicial sources confirmed the incident was a deliberate act.


    WTH is that!?

    bomb squad


    but then again the suspect was on the ground, face down , his pants were gone,in his underwear which struck me as odd about 20 minutes ago

    then I see the explosion and bomb deal right now so who knows?

    Terror investigate on scene

    ok now Sky news is reporting deliberate

    had rammed

    sky saying exploded

    probably dead

    anti terrorist on scene

    "probably" deliberate

    sounds like they are not sure frankly

    Explosive-laden car rams police van on Paris' Champs-Elysées in 'botched suicide attack'


    heavily-armed driver "deliberately" rammed a police van at the Champs-Elysées roundabout in Paris on Monday, just 200 yards form the presidential palace where Emmanuel Macron resides.


    The vehicle, a white Renault Mégane, struck a blue police van as it drove down the road in the central Parisian district at around 3.40pm, and burst into flames. Yellow smoke then billowed from the vehicle as police moved in to neutralise the driver.
    According to BFMTV, he jumped out of the car, weapon in hand, but then collapsed and died from blast injuries.

    Experts said that the curiously strange yellow smoke coming from the car suggested that it contained explosive material that failed to properly blow up on contact.
