France's president chaired an emergency security meeting Saturday aimed at thwarting a repeat of the attacks around Paris by terrorists linked to al-Qaida in Yemen that scarred the nation and left 20 dead at a satirical newspaper, a kosher supermarket and a printing house.
Three attackers were killed after three days of terror, but the sense of relief in France is tinged with worry and sorrow. The nation is mourning slain hostages and cartoonists, and President Francois Hollande urged his compatriots to remain vigilant. The common law wife of one attacker is still at large, believed to armed and dangerous.
On Saturday, media reports said that Hayat Boumeddiene, the wife of the deli attacker, had fled to Syria via Madrid. Boumeddiene, now referred to by European media as the most wanted woman in France, may have been accompanied by another man who was being monitored by French intelligence, according to one report.
Security forces are deployed around Paris, guarding places of worship and tourist sites, and preparing for what's likely to be a huge demonstration Sunday to show unity against extremists. World leaders including Germany's Angela Merkel and Britain's David Cameron are among the many expected to join.
