Armed police to patrol French beaches

Some French beaches will be monitored by armed patrols, according to reports quoting a police source, as the country tightens security for the summer holiday season.

Riot police officers are to be equipped with special holsters carrying weapons, following several terrorist attacks.

But overall numbers will be down on last year because of other security commitments.
