France may cancel the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Paris

France's internal security chief has expressed concern over the possibility of terrorist attacks on the opening day of the Olympics, "Europe 1" reports.

Against the backdrop of the recent terrorist attack at Crocus City Hall, the terrorist threat in France is very high. The French security service wants to avoid the scenario of a coordinated attack in front of cameras worldwide as much as possible on the day of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. As an anonymous intelligence service source reported, France should go to "Plan B," the ceremony's cancellation. The ceremony, in its current format, which involves a parade along the river on the Seine, "carries too many risks to remain as it is."

The Olympic Games in Paris will be held from July 26 to August 11.
