The mo­ment Hol­lande was told of his own 9/11

-

THIS is the mo­ment French pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande was told about Fri­day night’s atroc­i­ties – with chilling echoes of when US Pres­i­dent Ge­orge Bush was told about the 9/11 ter­ror­ist at­tacks.

France’s am­bas­sador to Lon­don said yes­ter­day the Paris at­tacks were her coun­try’s 9/11.

Sylvie Ber­mann said Is­lamic State was ‘plan­ning to kill us’, and France would wel­come fur­ther Bri­tish in­volve­ment in de­stroy­ing the ter­ror­ist group.

Home Sec­re­tary Theresa May said Bri­tain stood ‘ab­so­lutely shoul­der to shoul­der with the French’, adding: ‘We are both very clear that the ter­ror­ists will not win – we will de­feat them.’

But she re­sisted the sug­ges­tion the at­tacks could lead to min­is­ters mov­ing quickly to a vote on ex­tend­ing bomb­ing raids in Syria.
