The gunman killed in a suspected terror shooting on the Champs-Élysées in Paris was a French national, Belgian's interior minister has told the nation's public broadcaster VRT.
"The investigation is continuing. What we can confirm is that the perpetrator was a French national," Jan Jambon said.
Islamic State militants, who had claimed being behind the attack in which a French policeman was shot dead, had named the attacker as Abu Yousif al-Belgiki.
The naming - via its Amaq news agency - translates as "the Belgian" in Arabic.
Prosecutors describe French national with a long history of violence and criminal offences but few obvious signs of radicalisation.
A police officer has been killed and two others wounded in a shooting in the centre of Paris - here's what we know so far.
