French president urges more security

PARIS – French President François Hollande said he wants additional security efforts to be deployed and vigilance to be increased to “its highest level” after two police officials were killed by an attacker claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group.

Hollande spoke Tuesday in the Elysee Palace as police are investigating the Monday night attack in the Paris suburb of Magnanville. Hollande did not give details about the extra security measures. France is already under a state of emergency after IS attacks on Paris in November, and 90,000 security forces are deployed for the European Championship soccer tournament.
