Independent centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron, who was at the top of a recent poll, reached out to the Muslim community for solutions. Mr Melenchon has enjoyed a late surge in polls that place him among the top contenders during Sunday's first-round vote.

Gaspard Flamant says he fears Le Pen will win the election's first-round vote.

The Front National leader targeted security concerns as she addressed supporters in Marseille, the multi-ethnic city where two men were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of planning to attack a presidential candidate.

The Front National leaders commitment to ending Frances membership of the borderless Schengen area, described as “effectively an global passport-free zone for terrorists” by former Interpol chief Robert Noble, sets her on a collision course with the European Commission.

"Emmanuel Macron warmly thanked Barack Obama for his friendly call", En Marche! said in its own statement, Reuters reported.

While prosecutors haven't identified the potential targets, Le Pen said on BFM television that "we are all targets".

Le Pen has said she would extend the law banning "ostensible" religious signs to the streets of France.

The Grand Mosque of Lyon issued an appeal urging Muslims to cast ballots instead of isolating themselves, "so that all the children of France, regardless of their skin color, their origins or their religion, are fully involved in the future of their country".

Opponents of Le Pen and her anti-immigration National Front party also skirmished with police outside a Paris rally this week. "A peaceful and democratic uprising to give France back to its people", she said, "a day of glory will arrive".

Asked if France should leave the European Union, he replied: "We change it or we leave it".
