Expect 'new attacks', French PM warns

Moments after describing proposals by former president Nicolas Sarkozy to boost security as not the right way to deal with terrorist threats, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has warned that there would be “new attacks” in France.

After dismantling a “terrorist cell” that planned to attack a Paris railway station under the direction of the ISIL, Paris was put on high alert, even after a 15-year-old boy suspected of planning a separate attack, was arrested by French police.

The teenager was detained in eastern Paris on Saturday after having been under house arrest since April for suspected links to ISIL members.

“This week at least two attacks were foiled,” Manuel Valls said in an interview with Europe 1 radio and Itele television on Sunday.

“There will be new attacks, there will be innocent victims…this is also my role to tell this truth to the French people,” Valls said.
