Transcript: Driver in Paris police van attack is dead

An armed driver who plowed into a police van in Paris on Monday afternoon is dead, authorities say.

A police squadron was driving in the Champs-Elysees area when the driver intentionally drove a car full of explosives and weapons into the first squad van.

The car burst into flames on impact.

Police broke into the car and pulled the driver out.

Authorities say the driver is now dead.

France has been under a  state of emergency  since the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb says the attack shows the country still faces a significant threat.

He wants France's government to extend the state of emergency a few more months to Nov. 1.

There have been four other attacks on security officers in Paris since February.
