PARIS (Reuters) - A driver appeared to deliberately crash his car into a police van on the French capital's Champs Elysees avenue on Monday, the interior ministry said, and the Paris prosecutor's anti-terrorism unit said it had opened an investigation.
"It looks like this was a deliberate act," Interior Ministry Spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told reporters at the scene.
Brandet said it was very likely that the driver, who had been armed, was dead.
