Paris: French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Friday the heavy death toll in a three days of attacks in France showed clear flaws in intelligence.

"There is a clear failing. When 17 people die, it means there were cracks" in security, Valls told BFMTV, referring to the string of people slaughtered by three gunmen who were killed by security forces as they ended two separate hostage-takings.
