According to a survey by the Elabe pollster, 58 percent think that the French government is not doing all it could to fight terrorism, however, most people do not believe that any of the opposition parties could do better.
Thirty-one percent think that the right-wing Front National party could do a better job, while 39 percent think that they would not be any different.
Last Friday, an attacker, claiming allegiance to the Daesh* terrorist group hijacked a car and took several people hostage in a supermarket in the south of France. Gendarme Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame, who swapped places with a woman held hostage and helped capture the attacker, was shot and later succumbed to his wounds. The total number of victims was four. Earlier on Thursday, a driver tried to run over a group of soldiers in the east of France. Nobody was been hurt in the incident.
