Cazeneuve: France to Keep Border Controls as Long as Threat Remains

Checks at entry points will remain in place for as long as France faces a heightened terrorist threat, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.

“France will maintain the controls on its borders it set up on Friday as long as the terrorist threat requires us to do so,” he told reporters in Brussels at the conclusion of a meeting of his European Union counterparts.

France introduced controls at its normally check-free frontiers in response to Europe’s worst terrorist attack in a decade, which killed 129 people and injured another 352 in Paris on Nov. 13.
