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.

Axar.az reports citing to BBC the 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. Friday is the last day of campaigning before Sunday's presidential election.

The killer had spoken about wanting to kill police officers but had had no apparent link to Islamist radicalism, Mr Molins said. Cheurfi was arrested and his home searched in February after an inquiry was opened over reports that he had been talking of killing police and getting weapons, Mr Molins said.
