French government: remaining vigilant over troubles in Paris suburbs

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in France

PARIS (Reuters) – The French government will be “extremely vigilant” over this week’s violence in suburbs around Paris, even though it believes the unrest to be of a relatively low level, government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye told a news briefing on Wednesday.

“At this stage, we consider the unrest to still be of low intensity. It is localised and limited, and therefore as of today, there is no real cause for alarm but we will remain extremely vigilant,” she said.
