The French National Assembly, France’s lower house of the parliament, has voted to extend the country’s state of emergency until July 15, after the 2017 presidential elections.
Axar.az reports that, if it will be approved by the Senate, it would be the fifth time the French authorities have extended the state of emergency since the deadly Paris attacks in November of 2015 that killed at least 130 people. The last extension was passed after the Bastille Day attack in July, when an Islamic State-linked extremist rammed a truck through a crowd, killing 86 people.
