Assem­bly votes for 6-month ex­ten­sion of emer­gency laws

The Myanmar Times - - World -

France’s Na­tional Assem­bly voted by a huge ma­jor­ity early yes­ter­day for a pro­posed law that would ex­tend the state of emer­gency for six months fol­low­ing last week’s mas­sacre in Nice. The state of emer­gency has been in place since the Paris at­tacks in Novem­ber, and the ex­ten­sion would see the mea­sures – which give the po­lice ex­tra pow­ers to carry out searches and place peo­ple un­der house ar­rest – re­main in place un­til the end of Jan­uary 2017.
