Paris Police Operation Underway at Champs Elysees

PARIS—Paris police on Monday said they were dealing with an incident on the Champs Elysees in the city center as a Reuters witness saw officers cordon off an area near the avenue and close to the presidential Elysee palace.

The announcement on a police Twitter account advised the public to avoid the area, and came after people took to social media to report that a car had caught fire in the area.
