France Deploys 15,000 Troops

France will have more than 10,000 soldiers mobilized on home soil by Tuesday, defense minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced Monday, amid heightened efforts to security and track down possible accomplices in the wake of the deadliest terrorist attacks in France in half a century.
Earlier, the Interior Ministry said nearly 5,000 police officers would be deployed to guard Jewish schools and places of worship. The interior minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, said he was putting in place a "powerful and durable" system of protection for France's Jewish community, the largest in Europe, France24 reported. The move follows Friday’s bloody hostage siege at a kosher supermarket in eastern Paris in which four people were killed, along with the gunman, identified as 32-year-old Amedy Coulibaly.
The announcement of the fresh security measures came after more than 1.5 million people marched through Paris on Sunday in unity and solidarity for those murdered, in the biggest rally in modern French history.
