France is set to recruit thousands of  spies, extra police and investigators in order to boost national security and intelligence, two weeks after 17 people were killed by Islamist militants, Prime Minister Manuel Valls announced on Wednesday. Reuters report:

Warning the threat remained high after the most deadly Islamist attack on French soil, Valls said the state would hire 2,680 in the police, justice, intelligence and defense sectors by 2018 for anti-jihadi work, surveillance and security. air max 90 premium
Dozens of extra Muslim chaplains would also be employed to work with potential militants in France’s overcrowded jails. “The fight against terrorism, jihadism and radical Islam will be a long haul,” Valls told a news conference after the measures were agreed by President Francois Hollande’s cabinet.

“The first requirement is that we further reinforce the human and material assets of our intelligence services,” said Valls, who after the Jan. 7-9 attacks conceded there could have been “shortfalls” in monitoring and justice arrangements.

France is struggling to keep watch over an estimated 1,200 radical Islamists and some 200 people who have returned home after fighting with militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
