France ends state of emergency imposed after riots
Joshua Pantesco at 10:03 AM ET

[JURIST] As expected [JURIST report], the French Government on Tuesday officially declared [statement, in French] an end to the state of emergency [JURIST document] implemented in November to quell riots [JURIST report] that tore through the country late last year. Few French towns actually utilized the increased police powers authorized by the state of emergency, including the ability to set and enforce curfews and conduct searches of citizens and property without a warrant. The decision to lift the state of emergency was made after New Years Eve celebrations were more peaceful than expected. AP has more; Le Figaro has local coverage, in French.
