PARIS - France expelled a Tunisian man on Thursday, the interior ministry said, citing a "severe threat" to public safety as the country remained on high alert a month after Nice attacks that killed 85 people.

A ministry statement gave no detailed reason for the expulsion of Tunisian national Mohsen M'Hadi, which brought the total number of deportations of this kind to four in August.

A spokesman for the interior ministry was not immediately available for comment. The Socialist government's security record has attracted strong criticism from opposition politicians, less than a year before presidential elections.
