Does Macron finally get it?
French President Emmanuel Macron has declared the country ‘under attack’ following today’s mass stabbing in Nice.
He declared the incident in which three people died at the Notre Dame Cathedral as an ‘Islamist terrorist attack’ on the nation.
Officials earlier confirmed two people were beheaded in the horror at the church.
The leader halted parliament’s planned coronavirus lockdown debate to head to the southern city following the incident.
Mr Macron said security would be stepped up on French territory,
Soldiers would be posted at places of worship including churches to ‘protect’ them following the violence in Nice, and security would also be stepped up at schools too, he added.
Maybe the soldiers aren’t needed at the Churches. Soldiers can attack as well or better than protect. Per my earlier column, c’est l’heure.
