Champs-Élysées Attacker May Have Been Plotting Attack at Eiffel Tower

From L'Express, via Breitbart in English

The man behind the failed Champs-Élysées attack on Monday was filmed loitering near the Eiffel Tower an hour before his failed attack, raising questions from police and security services.

Failed terror suspect Adam Lotfi Djaziri, who was shot by police Monday afternoon after ramming his car into a police vehicle, was caught on CCTV an hour before the attack near the Eiffel Tower. Police believe that Djaziri was tracking police vehicles, though there is speculation he planned to target the historic monument, L’Express reports.

Djaziri was seen on CCTV for around half an hour sitting in his four-door Renaud Megane which contained a rifle and two gas canisters. Investigators believe the 31-year-old jihadist intended to ram his car into the van of Gendarmes, ignite the gas canisters, and blow himself up.

While Djaziri was successful in igniting his car, he ultimately failed to kill anyone other than himself. An autopsy was undertaken after his death which showed the cause to have been asphyxiation caused by the fire.
