PARIS - Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen on Friday said France should immediately reinstate border checks and expel foreigners who are on the watch lists of intelligence services.

Reacting to Thursday night's killing of a police officer in an attack claimed by Islamic State, Le Pen, who has been campaigning on a hardline anti-EU, anti-immigration platform, urged the Socialist government to carry out immediately these measures that are included in her campaign manifesto.
