Update: FRENCH INTERIOR MINISTER GERARD COLLOMB SAYS CHAMPS-ELYSEE CAR CONTAINED EXPLOSIVES, DRIVER DEAD

Additionally, according to AFP, a Kalashnikov, handguns and gas bottles were found in the Champs-Elysees car.

More from AP:

France’s interior minister says that a driver who rammed a car carrying explosives into a police convoy on the Champs-Elysees avenue has died after the “attempted attack” on security forces.

 

Gerard Collomb told reporters near the scene Monday that the man’s motives weren’t immediately clear.

 

Bomb squad officers are the scene on the city’s most famous avenue, which is popular with tourists. It was the second major incident on the avenue this year.

 

An attacker defending the Islamic State group shot and killed a police officer on the Champs-Elysees in April, days before a presidential election, prompting an extensive security operation.

There has been an incident on Paris' Champs Elysees, which has been cordoned off, with heavy police presence when car exploded after ramming a police van.  According to AFP, the French police say the car ramed a police van before bursting into flames. The suspected driver was 'downed' after driving into police car on Champs-Elysees and has been arrested. According to AFP, the car driver was armed.

The AP adds that two French police officials said that a suspected attacker drove into a police vehicle on the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris, and is now lying on the ground immobilized.  The suspect was wearing a white shirt and dark shorts.

The French national gendarmerie service says the driver of a car that rammed a law enforcement vehicle has been arrested and no one was hurt in the incident.

The police has confirmed an ongoing intervention on the famous Paris street and has asked people to avoid the area.

Some speculate the car may have exploded after hitting the van.

According to the police, the ramming driver caused no serious injuries.

I only hope those that are/were injured are "Refugees Welcome" people or Macron voters. 

To everyone else, I wish them a speedy recovery.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Has the EU yet realized that in this case, where there's smoke there really is fire?

Too true! It amazes how the left can hear "islamaphobia" bullshit everywhere but when an actual ex-muslim tells them the truth:

The PM of Canada would probably call this guy an "islamophobe"!

uMatrix is available for multiple browsers, as is Privacy Badger.  I also like NoScript extension in the Firefox browsers and customs builds/branches of it like Waterfox and Palemoon.

Some people may find the new Brave Chromium-core browser, with integrated filtering easier; one of the founders was from Mozilla.

It's the new normal. Not to be confused with the older new normal which was basically the same as the newest new normal. 

Get used to it!  ;-)

Once self driving cars become the norm, these attacks can be carried out from the safety of a concrete bunker in Tel Aviv.

This is obviously another case of Amish Rumspringa gone wrong.

This is in retalation for the van crash into pedestrians outside the London mosque. The one the London major immediately said it was a terror attack to which the police still hadn't questioned the driver after him being in custody for hours.  Perhaps like many Brits, he was drunk???  But then let's look at the scoreboard of how much muslim terror deaths there have been versus those of the people just gettign sick and tired of all the shit floating up on their shores.

Smart Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

Muzzies are really stupid! Totally incapable of exploiting the "terror" attack in London for more than a few hours, before they fuck it up. A low IQ enemy is a blessing I guess :P

Shootings in the US. Car ramming in Europa. Same old script. Man, who is doing your writing? You really need some new scriptwriters! Oh, what's that you say? You have very tight objectives. Okay, got ya. Gun control for the US and control everything everywhere.

Watching the banksters "incidents" is like watching mainstream Hollywood movies: 99% of the plots are the same; only details change.  I would give this particular Bankster Movie a 2 stars.

Shame they don't use a continuity director.

With all the product placement are the fortune 500 sponsoring these events ?

The sheeple are paying twice for their own shearing.

Now thats the unacceptable face of capitalism.

The white guy running down muzzies was kind of a twist in the script.

How come white people never yell about racist anglophobes when muzzies play dodgem cars?

A bit like the Chump. (((The System))) can survive the occassional outlier.

Edit: after the Champs d'Elysee crash, the vehicle burst into flames. (((Some))) speculated it had exploded. Gotta ramp up Teh Feer.

Nah, he was just a lager lout who alternated beer and shots for a couple hours and then got behind the wheel. This is why the government authorities are working feverishly to drum up a story of rife anti-muslim violence (which of course really only exists at the hands of that same government trying to grant the Middle East their "freedom").
