Prosecutors open terror investigation into Paris attack

French prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation into an attack in the Champs Elysees shopping district in Paris where an armed man killed one policeman and seriously injured two people.

President Francois Hollande said he was "convinced" a "terrorism" investigation was the correct approach to the incident after the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack.

Hollande promised "absolute vigilance, particularly with regard to the electoral process" as France braces for the first round of a presidential election on Sunday.
