  • Paris attacks: two years later, France grapples with how to fight terror

    Two years on, commemorations to remember the 130 killed, along with the survivors of the shootings at the Bataclan concert hall, the national stadium and at the terraces of Right Bank cafés. The new normal includes beefed-up anti-terror laws and the rout of jihadists on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria. ISIS may be on the run but are we any better at counter-radicalization? In a year that's seen attacks most notably in Manchester, London and Barcelona, are we any the wiser as to what to do?

  • Abrini's lawyer says he 'renounced' his mission in the Paris terror attacks & shouldn't be sentenced

    The defense pleas follow French prosecutors' sentencing demands in the historic Paris trial of 20 men suspected of critical roles in France’s worst peacetime attack, the Islamic State massacres that killed 130 people in 2015. Final words from the defendants are set for June 27, with a verdict expected on June 29. Joining FRANCE 24 is Stanislas Eskenazi, the lawyer representing Mohamed Abrini. He asserts that "we should focus on" the day before the 2015 Paris terror attacks," when Abrini renounced his mission. "The proof being given by the prosecution is that he renounced, so he didn't go for it. And because he didn't go for it, we can't give a sentence to somebody who didn't go for it. And you have Salah Abdeslam who was there on the night of the killings. If you give a life sentence to both of them," Mr. Eskenazi says it sends the wrong message: "Go for it, because in either case scenario you go for a life sentence."
