France will seek to keep its state of emergency until a “total and global war” against so-called Islamic State (IS) is over, the Prime Minister of France Manuel Valls has told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

The measures were introduced after the IS-led Paris attacks on November 13, 2015 and then extended for three-months. Such a move gives Police more power to conduct raids and impose house arrests.

Prime Minister Valls also warned that Europe’s migration crisis was now putting the European Union (EU) itself at grave risk.
