On Friday night Paris was targeted by terrorists in a horrifying coordinated attack across the city that left over 100 people dead and many more injured.

Though we’ve recently learned some details about the attackers and who might have been the mastermind behind it all, there’s still a lot to be done to help the people of France and make them feel safe.

French Minister of Interior Bernard Cazeneuve is taking strong measures to ensure the safety of his citizens.

MSNBC reported that during an interview on French television Bernard called for the dissolution of “mosques where hate is preached.”

The minister has long advocated for the government to meet the needs of France’s five million Muslim residents — particularly after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January — but has also done all he can to curb violent extremism.

Earlier this year France deported several imams — Islamic spiritual leaders — for “preaching hatred.”

Besides the closing of mosques, ​MSNBC also reported that French Minister of Justice Christiane Taubira announced that all the attackers are dead.

What do you think of how the French government is handling the fallout from the attacks?
