French FM says no-fly zone will not be enforced until after Paris attacks

The French government on Monday said the country’s airspace would remain open for air traffic to fly on after the deadly attacks in Paris.

The move comes as France is on high alert after at least 14 people were killed and hundreds wounded in the attack on its largest city and its airport.

The death toll is expected to rise as investigators continue to trace the attack and determine if any of the attackers were involved.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday told reporters that the country will “not stop fighting until the final battle” is won.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the state of emergency will be extended through June 21, when France will no longer be under an armed attack threat.

France is on heightened alert after a wave of terrorist attacks that left 129 dead in Paris, including a suicide bomber who detonated an explosive device in the city’s main square.

The government has imposed new restrictions on people with criminal records and has imposed restrictions on the use of mobile phones, including by people who are suspected of links to terrorism.
