    France will install security gates at stations serving Thalys cross-Europe trains, operating on the territory of France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, according to a statement by the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, Segolene Royal.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — Additional security measures will be introduced by December 20 in the French cities of Paris and Lille, she said.

    "If necessary, France will install the gates [in Brussels, Amsterdam and Cologne], so they will be similar to the equipment installed in Paris and Lille," Roayl said, as quoted by the France Inter radio station.

    The anti-terrorism measures come as a response to the November 13 series of coordinated attacks and suicide bombings in the French capital that killed 130 and injured over 360.
