paris - Researchers found a large amount of weapons in the house of the man who entered a car with police officers on the Champs-Elysées in Paris on Monday. According to the French television station BFM, several firearms, ammunition and bombing equipment have been seized, as well as some mobile phones and a computer.
The perpetrator, a 31-year-old radicalized man of French nationality, came to fire when his car flew on fire after the collision. In the vehicle the police also found weapons, explosives and vans gas.
For the weapons the man had a license. The authorities investigate why it was not withdrawn after the man was alerted because he was in circles associated with terrorism. 'Nobody can be happy there and I'm not sure,' said Prime Minister Edouard Philippe against BFM.
Four family members of the man were arrested for trial.
