France’s Interior Minister Matthias Fekl has announced increased security on Paris’s subway lines on Tuesday, April 4, following Monday’s attack by an apparent terrorist suicide bomber on the St. Petersburg subway system that left 14 dead.

Fekl said in a statement, “Amid an extremely high terrorism threat, the government continues to take measures to protect the French people.”

France knows the feeling of mourning citizens lost to terrorism. ISIS-inspired terrorists have attacked several times in the past two years, killing more than 230 people.
