PARIS - The French government has dropped plans announced shortly after the November 13 Islamic State attacks on Paris to strip dual citizens of their French nationality in terrorism cases, a minister said on Tuesday.

After gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 in the attacks, President Francois Hollande called for the measures as part of constitutional amendment aimed at stepping up the fight on terrorism.The measure would have made it possible to strip dual citizens of their French nationality if they carried out acts threatening national security.
