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.
