    Two administrative searches have been conducted at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, also known as Roissy Airport, authorities at the hub confirmed.

    “There is no direct connection with the [Paris] attacks, but [the search] is being carried out for several reasons, including elements in connection with radicalization.”

    “What would our country be without its cafes, concerts, sport events and museums?” he said, adding, “Life must resume in full,” and, “Our tourists can be welcomed.”
