France has deployed 97,000 police and soldiers to protect people from potential terror attacks during Christmas.
The country’s interior ministry said the measure comes in “the context of a still-elevated terrorist threat.” Personnel will primarily focus on Christmas markets, shopping centers, religious buildings and popular tourist sites.
