The gunman killed after shooting dead a policeman on the Champs Elysees has been named by the Paris prosecutor as Karim Cheurfi, a convicted criminal.
He used a Kalashnikov assault rifle to kill the police officer with two bullets to the head, François Molins told journalists in the French capital.
A note defending so-called Islamic State was found near his body.
Candidates in Sunday’s presidential election have been accused of exploiting the attack politically.
Cheurfi had four criminal convictions, the prosecutor said.
