In a statement released 2 November, the Mali-based jihadist Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) reportedly called on its supporters to kill anyone insulting the Prophet Muhammad and to take revenge on French President Emmanuel Macron, following his comments on Islam. 

We recall that tens of thousands of people demonstrated in recent days against France in several Muslim countries burning effigies of the president and French flags.

In this context, a significant security reinforcement is to be expected, in particular around train stations, places of worship and public places. 

Ongoing anti-French protests are to be expected in the coming days in Muslim countries.
