“A violent, hours-long operation in a Paris suburb ended Wednesday with two suspected terrorists dead, seven detained, new attacks potentially thwarted and further proof, according to French President Francois Hollande, that his country is ‘at war’ with ISIS,” cnn.com reports. Which is why Hollande still wants to extend France’s post-Parisian terrorist attack state of emergency by three months. Hollande admits that the state of emergency restricts “certain liberties” (i.e., removing the need for a search warrant or the requirement of formal charges for detaining citizens) but insists . . .
that the new law will give France the means to re-establish citizens’ liberty. Meanwhile, it’s not yet known if terrorist Abdelhamid Abaaoud was among those killed or captured. nbcnews.com reports that “A woman detonated a suicide vest as the apartment was stormed, according to the Paris Prosecutor’s Office. It was not immediately clear how the second person died. Five police officers and a passerby were injured during the incident. A police dog named Diesel was also killed.”
