I'm reporting in front of 102 Avenue des Champs Elysées, where the Paris terrorist attack occurred yesterday.
The atmosphere invited a moment of recollection in memory of the policeman who died in the attack.
A banner among the flowers said, "De tout cœur avec la police. Vive la France," which means "With the police with all our heart. Vive la France!"
Will this terrible attack, perpetrated by the Islamic State, change the course of the presidential election and increase the popularity of Marine Le Pen's Front National?
