The official and another, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Cheurfi was detained toward the end of February after speaking threateningly about police but was then released for lack of evidence. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the group's Amaq news agency.

France's presidential election race has been a volatile spectacle, as unexpected candidates have surged into the limelight while scandals involving some have made the outcome uncertain. In addition, Le Pen will block the flow of migrants, capping refugee totals to 10,000 per year.

Conservative contender Francois Fillon, who has campaigned against "Islamic totalitarianism", said on France 2 television that he was canceling his planned campaign stops Friday.

In recent presidential primaries, on the right and the left, they kicked out the favourites, eliminating a former president (Nicolas Sarkozy) and two former prime ministers (Alain Juppé and Manuel Valls). Under French election rules, Friday was due to be the final day of campaigning before Sunday's first round of voting. Only the two top-getters will advance to the runoff on May 7.

"A win by the populist Marine Le Pen in the second round could result in a prolonged period of uncertainty as she attempts to negotiate better terms for France remaining in the European Union." said Beata Caranci, chief economist at TD Securities.

He also wants France to quit North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

In storied Provence, a land of vineyards, olive groves and charming towns, it's startling to hear this kind of discontent among the French, but the sentiment is there, and it has already upended French politics.

"All in all, US voters were sharing very poor quality news and information about major public policy debates at a critical time before a national election", Philip Howard, director of the Oxford Institute said.

Fillon said that if elected he would focus on the destruction of ISIS. It will determine if the wave of nationalist populism sweeping across the globe will continue to reshape the worldwide landscape.

The US dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of trade-weighted peers, was also steady at 99.816, on track to lose 0.7 per cent this week. "This fight for freedom and for the security of the French people must be the priority of the next five-year term". It was not clear whether ISIS was referring to the man who surrendered himself in Antwerp.

Although there are 50,000 police on the streets, CNN's Bitterman points out, there are 60,000 polling stations.

French President François Hollande convened a meeting of the country's defense council Friday. By 9 a.m. EDT.

The attacker emerged from a vehicle and used an automatic weapon to shoot at officers outside a Marks & Spencer's department store at the center of the Champs-Elysees. "Other policemen engaged and shot and killed the attacker", he added.

The dead officer was 30, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said. Also wounded was a female tourist.

Elena Worms, walking her dog near the Champs-Elysees, called the attack "destabilizing" and said she fears it will "push people to the extremes". He was convicted in that attack and had a criminal record because of involvement in violent robberies.

It noted that the problem was less acute than in the USA elections, where junk news, for instance in the state of MI, at times accounted for one out of every two links shared. Speaking in English, he vowed to "fight to the last minute" and said he'd "keep in touch" with the former USA president.

While analysts have deemed it unlikely that the National Front leader will be able to win the penultimate vote whoever she faces, a great many pundits are pointing to incorrect predictions about Brexit and Donald Trump after failing to feel the rising pulse of right-wing populism.
