France’s Valls: State of Emergency to Be Lifted If Threat Drops

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the state of emergency imposed after the November attacks in Paris will be lifted if the threat of new terrorist attacks drops.

The state of emergency, which gives exceptional and extended rights to law enforcement to find possible attackers, was voted by the Parliament for a 3 month-period after the Paris attacks that killed 130 people.

The government does a regular assessment to decide if it has to be maintained, Valls told France Inter radio Friday.
