France’s military campaign against IS in Iraq and Syria will also intensify.

IS claimed the terror attacks bars, restaurants, a concert hall and a stadium in Paris resulting in the deaths of 129 people.

Speaking during a joint session of both houses of parliament, Hollande said the constitution needed to be amended as “we need an appropriate tool we can use without having to resort to the state of emergency”.
