France in focus

Life under a state of emergency

This week we join the French army at the Fort of Vincennes where we take a look at France's security response amid the threat of further terror attacks. We will introduce you to the country's different security forces. We will also meet with troops mobilised to support police under the framework of the so-called Sentinelle operation. Finally, we take a look at how the state of emergency has sparked concerns regarding possible abuses of power.
