French synagogues batten the hatches after Lyon jihad horror

French police have said that the jihadi attack near Lyon last week was part of a wider terror operation and, as a result, Jewish institutions across the country are taking extra security measures.

Sources say that further terrorist attacks could happen at any moment and that while there are many targets, Jews and Israelis are clearly on the front line.

It is widely understood that the army, the police, industrial facilities and Christian sites also face high threat levels.
