The summer is in full swing in France but beneath the surface there is growing anxiety.
With every new terror attack, French citizens stoically declare that "life goes on", but despite this show of defiance, a creeping anxiety has taken hold of society.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was killed and five injured in a knife attack in Russell Square, central London.
Two men armed with knives have taken hostages at a church in Normandy, northern France according to reports. Their motives remain unknown.
Police currently believe that an 18-year-old German-Iranian acted alone, killing nine people and then himself. They have not yet identified a motive; the man had no criminal record. Munich spent hours under lockdown.
