French Prime Minister Cites Risk of Biological, Chemical Attack

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is calling on an extension of the country’s state of emergency to be extended for another three months, NBC News reported.

Valls believes there “could also be a risk of an attack using chemical or biological weapons.

"Terrorism hit France not because of what it is doing in Iraq and Syria ... but for what it is," Manuel Valls told the lower house of parliament. "We know that there could also be a risk of chemical or biological weapons ... We must not rule anything out."

Valls was unveiling a security bill in the wake of the Paris attacks. The measures are aimed at reducing the threat of attacks by extremist groups, according to NBC News.
