Four relatives of a man killed after ramming his car into a police convoy in Paris’s Champs-Elysees are in custody.
The Paris prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday that the four family members were detained overnight in the anti-terrorism investigation into Monday’s attack.
Officials said the man was on police radar for ties to radicalism.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed on BFM television on Monday that the man had a gun permit but that it was initially issued before the attacker was flagged to authorities.

The Champs-Elysees reopened overnight.
