France’s parliament has again tightened security laws in the fight against terrorism. The Senate on Wednesday finally approved a controversial new anti-terror law. It incorporates certain measures of the state of emergency into normal law in a weakened form, but this is limited to a good three years. The aim is to prepare the security forces for the planned end of the state of emergency, which was imposed after the devastating terrorist attacks in Paris and is now due to expire on November 1.
