France boosts security at markets after Berlin attack

World Bulletin / News Desk

Security has been beefed up at Christmas markets throughout France following the carnage in Berlin on Monday, French Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said.

"Security at Christmas markets was immediately reinforced" after a lorry ploughed into a Berlin Christmas market killing at least nine people, he said.

President Francois Hollande said the French people "share in the mourning of the Germans in the face of this tragedy that has hit all of Europe".

The Nice attack which killed 86 people further traumatised a country already reeling from a series of attacks including the November 2015 massacre in Paris.
