The Paris police chief said Monday that the threat of a terror attack on the French capital remains high, requiring continued intelligence and surveillance efforts. Pierre Mutz, speaking at a city council meeting considering the police budget for 2007, did not name any specific new dangers, but said "The threat remains high." The government ordered extra military patrols on public transport before the Christmas and New Year's holidays, when visitors and tourists pack Paris. "What we have seen in the past in Paris, ... and what has happened to our neighbors recently, show how large metropolitan areas and their public transport systems are sensitive to attacks," Mutz said.
