steps up France security over Mali and Somalia
News, 13 January 2013
French President Francois Hollande has
ordered security stepped up around public buildings and transport
because of military operations in Africa.
He was responding to the risk of Islamist attack after French forces
attacked militants in Mali and Somalia. [...]
France's anti-terrorism alert system known as "Vigipirate" is being
reinforced immediately, with security boosted at public buildings and
transport networks, particularly rail and air. Public gatherings will
also be affected.
The alert will remain at red, the second-highest level at which
emergency counter-attack measures are put in place.
The "struggle against terrorism" required all necessary precautions to
be taken in France itself, the president said.
