President Francois Hollande's plan to strip French citizenship from people convicted of terrorism passed a first hurdle Tuesday when the lower house of parliament backed controversial proposals introduced after Islamist extremists killed 130 people in Paris last year.French Prime Minister Manuel Valls welcomed the vote's result.A follow-up vote is scheduled for Wednesday in which the lower house is due to reaffirm the vote.To change the constitution, the government's proposal will need approval by the upper house of parliament, the Senate, and then finally by both houses by a three-fifths majority, a process likely to take weeks.
