France has raised its security alert level following the attack on a Christmas market in Strasbourg, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said early Wednesday.

The government has upped the level to “emergency attack” with “the implementation of reinforced border controls and tightened controls on all Christmas markets in France to avoid the risk of a copycat” attack, he said.
