The world's biggest companies must help fight terrorism by taking action against money laundering and trafficking, French President Francois Hollande told business leaders in Davos on Friday.

Two weeks after the attacks that saw 17 killed by Islamist gunmen in Paris, Hollande told a packed audience of bank chief executives and investors: "Don't let a beast roam today when it could attack you tomorrow."

Hollande, whose speech received loud applause, urged internet companies to make sure "illegal content" was taken off the web, saying governments could not fight terrorism on their own.

Corporate leaders must fight against the trafficking of people, drugs and goods, and combat tax havens to dry up financial sources for terrorism, he added, while urging EU countries to agree on a European database of air passengers.
