Note praising ISIS found in pocket of Paris attacker

French anti-terrorism prosecutor Francois Molins said on Friday authorities found a note which defends and praises the Islamic State (ISIS) near the Paris shooter who killed one policeman and injured another two.

The police assumes the note fell out of the pocket of the attacker, Karim Cheurfi, who was killed by the law enforcement following the incident. According to the authorities, Cheurfi had a criminal record and had been under surveillance of France's security services after allegedly attempting to attack policemen in the past.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack on Champs-Elysees on Thursday evening. Earlier today, a second suspect in the attack turned himself in to Belgian authorities over his involvement in the incident in the French capital.
