"Here is a message to the world, to all the tourists who canceled their trips: 'Come to Paris! The city is safe,' " Valls said on Europe 1 radio. "Spend your money, live, go to cinemas, to theaters. That's our message and it's the answer to this terrorist attack."
Last month, gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris cafes and a concert hall in the second terrorist assault in the city this year. The government has deployed nearly 10,000 soldiers and police in and around Paris to maintain security.
