    Chief Executive of Aeroports de Paris (ADP) Augustin de Romanet said Sunday that 70 employees of two Paris airports were deprived of their secure-zone badges.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The so-called red badges are given to people working in an airport secure zone, which is closed to the public.

    "Seventy badges have been removed, in particular for the reasons of radicalization," de Romanet told Europe 1 broadcaster.

    A total of some 85,000 people are said to have secure-zone clearance. The badges have been retrieved from the workers of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports.

    The move came after the November 13 series of terror attacks across Paris, when several suicide bombers launched assaults on several venues. The attacks left 130 people killed and over 360 injured. Daesh, also known as ISIL/the Islamic State terrorist group, outlawed in Russia, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
