PARIS (REUTERS) - The French police raided homes of suspected Islamists overnight across the country in the aftermath of the Paris shootings, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Monday (Nov 16).

He also said that the French intelligence services had prevented several attacks since the summer and that the police knew other attacks were being prepared in France and the rest of Europe.

"We are making use of the legal framework of the state of emergency to question people who are part of the radical jihadist movement... and all those who advocate hate of the republic," he said on RTL radio.
