Prime Minister Manuel Valls sought to ease concerns in France Tuesday over a spate of seemingly unrelated but bloody attacks, saying up to 300 soldiers would be deployed around the country to ensure security.

“The number of patrols will be increased during this (Christmas) period. Two hundred to 300 soldiers will be deployed in the coming hours,” he said live on television.
