10 French unaccounted for after London bombs

About 10 French nationals are still unaccounted for after last week’s deadly terror bombings in London, France’s minister for European affairs said today.

Catherine Colonna said Europe had made progress in the fight against terrorism since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US, but more needed to be done.

Referring to the London attacks, Colonna said, “We still have no news from about 10 French citizens … as time progresses, we hope to have more information.”

She credited Europe for improving cross-border operational co-operation and implementing new European arrest warrants to help fight terrorism, but said more needed to be done between intelligence services, police and state prosecutors.
