The threat of further militant attacks in France remains at its highest level, President Francois Hollande said today.

"We're not finished with terrorism," Hollande said in a New Year message that also defended constitutional changes underpinning a crackdown on militant groups after November's deadly Islamist attacks in Paris that killed 130 peole.

 

"The threat is still there," he said. "It remains in fact at its highest level, and we are regularly disrupting planned attacks."
