Paris: President Francois Hollande said Tuesday France was under a "high-level of threat" from terror attack following the carnage at a Berlin Christmas market.

Hollande said although France faced an elevated threat, it also already had a large-scale "security operation" in place following a string of jihadist outrages in the country over the past two years.
