France holds emergency security meeting, calls on citizens to maintain 'extreme vigilance'

As authorities continue to hunt Hayat Boumeddiene, France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Saturday that citizens must maintain "extreme vigilance" following three days of terror in and around Paris.

"Given the context, we are exposed to risks," Cazeneuve said as reported by The Associated Press.

World leaders such as Angela Merkel of Germany and Britain's David Cameron are expected to attend a massive demonstration against terrorism in Paris, scheduled for Sunday. But officials are still searching for Boumeddiene, who is considered an accomplice of her common-law husband Amedy Coulibaly, who shot a policewoman on Thursday before attacking a Paris kosher supermarket on Friday.

Authorities determined that Coulibaly's attacks were linked to Said and Cherif Kouachi, brothers who murdered 12 people at satirical publication Charlie Hebdo's offices on Wednesday.
