France drops plans to strip dual nationality in terrorism cases

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.

The measure would have made it possible to strip dual citizens of their French nationality if they carried out acts threatening national security.
