New Straits Times - - News -

PARIS: French Prime Min­is­ter Edouard Philippe yes­ter­day called on French cit­i­zens to be vig­i­lant fol­low­ing the sui­cide at­tack at a con­cert in Manch­ester, the United King­dom which Philippe de­scribed as an “abom­inable crime”. “The most cow­ardly form of ter­ror­ism has struck once again, tar­get­ing — as in Paris more than a year ago — a con­cert venue,” Philippe said in a ref­er­ence to a sim­i­lar at­tack at the Bat­a­clan con­cert hall in Novem­ber 2015.

“I call on my fel­low cit­i­zens to ob­serve the ut­most vig­i­lance, con­fronted as we are with a threat which is more present than ever be­fore.” Reuters
