France's Cabinet Invokes
PARIS – France's cabinet issued a state-of-emergency decree Tuesday that gives local authorities the power to impose curfews and take other extraordinary measures to halt the country's worst civil unrest in decades after violence around the country raged for a 12th night.
The decree allowing curfews was to become effective at midnight Tuesday, government spokesman Jean-Francois Cope said, adding that there would be an initial 12-day limit to the state-of-emergency measures.
The curfews are authorized under a 50-year-old law that allows the declaration of a state of emergency in all or parts of France. The law was originally passed to curb unrest in Algeria during the war there that led to the North African nation's independence from France.
