120 Additional Police Officers to Nice Due to the Recent Attack

Due to the recent attack, the French government is sending an additional 120 police officers to Nice.


French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced this Friday after a summit meeting with President Emmanuel Macron.

Three people were killed in Nice on Thursday morning when a young Tunisian attacked people in a church. He was armed with a knife and is said to have shouted: “Allahu akbar” (God is the greatest).

The Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian also announced that French ambassadors would be instructed to protect their embassies and French citizens abroad better.

That appeal follows international anti-French protests against President Macron.

He recently spoke out strongly against Islamic extremism, after French teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded earlier this month for showing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in a lesson.
