Islamophobia! Paris unleashes DOG ARMY to fight terror on public transport

PARIS is bolstering security with a series of new measures aimed at fighting terrorism on public transport.

Valérie Pécresse, the conservative president of the wider Paris region, said an additional 20 sniffer dog teams would be used to detect illegal drugs and explosives and screen rail passengers for bomb-making materials; and that the dogs would be trained “before the end of 2019”.

The bomb-sniffing ‘squads’ – which will cost some €4m (£3.5m) to train – will be sent to patrol Paris’s busiest railway stations, including the Gare de Lyon, the Gare du Nord and the Gare Montparnasse.
