Paris:  France will deploy some 500 extra military personnel in the greater Paris region, the defence ministry said on Saturday, the day after twin sieges sowed fear on the streets of the capital.

"We will this morning announce a reinforcement of 500 additional military personnel, in two waves in Ile de France," said the ministry, referring to Paris and the immediate surrounding areas.
