France’s economy slowed following the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris and a subsequent tightening of security around the country, but it continued to grow, according to surveys released Monday, Nasdaq reported. The surveys are the first national measure of economic activity released since the attacks at the Bataclan concert hall and other locations claimed 130 lives in the French capital. Markit said responses were received between Nov 12 and Nov. 20. The headline measure of activity based on the survey, and known as the composite purchasing managers index, fell to 51.3 from 52.6 in October.
