French government faces criticism of security after church attack | Reuters

PARIS/SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France France's Socialist government fended off criticism of its security record on Wednesday in the wake of revelations that one of the assailants who slit the throat of a priest at a church altar was a known would-be jihadist under police surveillance. President Francois Hollande met interfaith leaders in an effort to promote national unity. But his predecessor and potential opponent in a presidential election next year, Nicolas Sarkozy, said the government must take stronger steps to track known Islamist sympathisers #India #markets #Crime #Argentina #French #kidnapping

Iran summons French ambassador over dissident meeting in Paris | Reuters

DUBAI Iran summoned the French ambassador on Tuesday to protest about a meeting held in Paris by Iranians in exile who seek the overthrow of the Islamic Republic. The rally was held on Saturday by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the political wing of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq Organisation (MKO), a group that waged armed struggle against the Iranian government after the 1979 revolution and assassinated dozens of its top officials. The MKO sided with Saddam Hussein during Iraq's war with Iran in the 1980s but fell out of favour with Baghdad after he was toppled by the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 #United States #Business #markets #Iran #Argentina #French

Paris attack victims to sue French state over surveillance lapses - lawyer | Reuters

PARIS/NIMES Victims of last November's Islamic State assault on Paris plan to sue the French state for failing to avert a killing spree by militants who had drawn scrutiny from police and intelligence services, a lawyer for the group said on Tuesday. Earlier in the day a court in a separate case found the French state partly at fault over the killing of a French soldier in 2012 by Mohamed Merah, a militant whose activities had also been tracked for some time by police and security services. Merah was killed in a shootout with police that year. #United States #India #Islam #Europe #Argentina #French #article
