Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 130 people.
And while all of France is honoring the victims of the attack, there was some unexpected news ??? France's yearlong state of emergency could be extended again.
"It is difficult at this stage to end the state of emergency, especially as we are about to begin a presidential election campaign in a few weeks when public meetings will be held. We need to protect our democracy," French Prime Minister Manuel Valls told the BBC.
The state of emergency allows French security forces to perform warrantless searches. And it has been used not only against terrorist cells, but also to break up protests.
But a poll from the French Institute for Public Opinion in June found the majority of people either liked the state of emergency as it is now or wanted it to be even stronger.
