In the latest issue of Bonjour Paris news, I have an article that talks about these subjects. You can read it all here.
I wrote up a piece for Bonjour Paris covering this diverse topics. You can read the article here.
I write for Bonjour Paris, a valuable resource, with summaries of French news. This week I focus on French politics, NATO intervention in Libya, regime change in Côte d’Ivoire and the debate on Islam in France.
Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden threatened France recently with repercussions for alleged offenses against Islam (fighting in Afghanistan and banning the Muslim burqa in France, etc.). French intelligence services are taking this threat seriously and are working with various western intelligence agencies to counter the threat.
Meanwhile French resources can be found here, and at Figaro. Francois Bayrou, a center politician from the MODEM party, has asked that President Sarkozy inform French political leaders about the exact nature of the threat.
This follows threats in Europe including against France that were highlighted recently.
