Romania's Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu on Friday extended condolences to the family of the French policeman shot dead on Thursday night in Paris.

"My sympathies to the family of the French police officer killed last night in a Paris attack. We are extending our solidarity with our French friends," Grindeanu said in a Facebook post.

A police officer died and two were seriously wounded on Thursdays evening as they were trading fire with an attacker on the famous Champs-Elysees Boulevard in Paris. The assailant was shot dead.

Pierre-Henry Brandet, the spokesman for the French Ministry of the Interior said that just before 09:00 pm, "a vehicle stopped alongside a police van where policemen were stationed inside and outside (...) a man got out of the vehicle and opened fire on the van with an automatic weapon, fatally wounding a policeman. He ran along the pavement, shooting and wounding two other policemen. The police returned fire, killing the assailant."
