Tourists were back on the Champs Elysees Friday with a mixture of shock and defiance, a day after an extremist shot dead a policeman on the world-famous avenue on the eve of France’s election. 

Nearby, a police officer laid a white rose at the site where the shooter felled his comrade with an automatic weapon, unleashing a firefight in which the assailant was killed and two other officers were wounded.
