French Prime Minister Manuel Valls warned Tuesday that the country can expect more attacks and deaths and will have to “learn to live with the threat.”

“Even if these words are hard to say, it's my duty to do so: There will be other attacks and there will be other innocent people killed,” Valls told French deputies debating an extension to the country's state of emergency.

“We must not become accustomed, but learn to live with this menace,” added Valls, speaking days after an attacker ploughed a truck through a crowd at a July 14 fireworks display in Nice, killing 84 people.
