SOLDIERS are to be deployed to tourist attractions and towns in the Dordogne as security measures are maintained as part of the Opération Sentinelle plan to protect against terrorist acts.
France Bleu Périgord reports that 26 military personnel, alongside additional gendarmes, will patrol popular tourist areas and events over the next couple of months.
This is the third year that additional security measures have been undertaken in the Dordogne, and the troops are expected to be on patrol until 2 September.
