France will ‘never yield’ to terror, Hollande vows at ceremony

French President Francois Hollande laid the country’s highest decoration, the Legion d’honneur, on the coffins of three fallen police officers draped in the red, white and blue flag.

“Our great and beautiful France will never break, will never yield, never bend” in the face of the Islamist threat that is “still there, inside and outside” the country, said Hollande, surrounded by weeping families and uniformed colleagues.
