PARIS: France is at immediate risk of a major terror attack by Islamist radicals and has further reinforced already urgent security measures since last week, officials said on Monday.
Asked about reports that an attack might be imminent, Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said: “The threat is real, we have stepped up our vigilance.”
Separately, a source close to the ministry confirmed that police are probing reports that a female suicide bomber may be preparing a strike in Paris, but added: “That’s not necessarily the most worrying thing.”
Instead, he explained, Paris is concerned with intelligence received from an allied foreign spy agency that Al Qaeda’s North African branch, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), was planning an “imminent” attack in France.
