President Hollande said the murder of a police commander and his partner on Tuesday were “unquestionably a terrorist act” as their killer claimed allegiance to the so-called Islamic State. Jean Christophe Couvy, police mayor and representative of police union, Unité SGP, and Asiem El Difraoui, an expert on jihadis and an advisor to the French Government, discuss the recent terror attacks in Paris.
