France raises anti-terror security after tip-offs

“France is on heightened alert for possible terror attacks after intelligence suggested public places could be targeted, officials have said.

The officials, who spoke anonymously, said one tip-off suggested a female suicide bomber was planning to attack the transport system.

Without confirming the reports, Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said ‘the terrorism threat is real’.

He said the alert level was unchanged at ‘red’ – the second-highest.

But speaking on Monday, Mr Hortefeux added: ‘As of today we have enhanced our vigilance.’ “
