France’s president says a bill to extend the country’s state of emergency for three months will be presented to parliament on Wednesday.

Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency following Friday night’s attacks across the capital and at the Stade de France. Parliament must approve extending it.

The state of emergency extends some police powers of search and arrest and limits public gatherings, among other changes.
