    French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is concentrated after he addressed the parliament at the national assembly in Paris, Thursday Nov.19,2015. Valls is warning that the associates of extremists who targeted France last week could use chemical and biological weapons, as he urged Parliament to extend a state of emergency.

    French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is calling on an extension of the country’s state of emergency to be extended for another three months, NBC News reported.

    Valls believes there “could also be a risk of an attack using chemical or biological weapons.

    "Terrorism hit France not because of what it is doing in Iraq and Syria ... but for what it is," Manuel Valls told the lower house of parliament. "We know that there could also be a risk of chemical or biological weapons ... We must not rule anything out."

    Valls was unveiling a security bill in the wake of the Paris attacks. The measures are aimed at reducing the threat of attacks by extremist groups, according to NBC News.
