(London Guardian) Families of the victims of a 1982 terrorist attack in Paris are demanding a parliamentary inquiry after reports that the former chief of French intelligence made a secret pact with the perpetrators.
They have called on President Emmanuel Macron to declassify the top-secret file of the attack, which killed six and injured 22 others.
