Les obsèques de Dominique Bernard, assassiné le 13 octobre, auront lieu ce jeudi, à 10 heures, à la cathédrale d’Arras. Le chef de l’Etat y assistera, mais sans prendre la parole.
Since the Arras attack on Friday, October 13th, Emmanuel Macron’s reaction has been a mix of firmness and softness in his speeches. The State will be « ruthless » and « relentless » towards those who promote hatred, warned the President without publicly stating it. At the request of the Elysée, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, and the Minister of National Education, Gabriel Attal, are dominating the media space to ensure the firm response from the government.
