Previously, President Emmanuel Macron convened a meeting of the National Defense and Security Council, where potential threats to the country were discussed.

The elevation of the Vigipirate system to the "exceptional terrorist threat" status occurred against the backdrop of threats facing the country.

The American embassy in France warned US citizens about the possibility of attacks on places of mass gatherings, noting that the attacks could occur without prior warning.

This decision was made following the Hamas attack on Israel in 2023.

We also wrote that the performance of Ai Nakamura at the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 was under threat due to racist insults, despite the support from French President Emmanuel Macron.
