    It comes just a day after Britain vowed to beat terrorism on the first anniversary of the Westminster attack.
    France has been on high terror alert after a string of terror attack since 2015.
    A state of emergency put in place after the Paris massacre in November 2015 was finally lifted last October.
    However, soldiers continue to patrol tourist sites and transport hubs.

    RIP mate. The very definition of courage.

    French policeman Arnaud Beltrame, who took the place of a hostage during an attack at a supermarket, has died.
    Mr Beltrame, 45, had swapped himself with the last remaining hostage during the attack in Trebes, south west France, on Friday.





    He was shot by Redouane Lakdim, prompting counter-terror officers to storm the supermarket and shoot the Islamist terrorist dead.
    Interior Minister Gerard Collomb announced the death on Twitter, saying France would never forget Mr Beltrame's heroism, bravery and sacrifice.
