France's president nixed a proposal to revoke convicted terrorists of their French nationality if they are dual citizens after the country's Parliament was resistant.
President Francois Hollande said Wednesday, "A compromise appears out of reach."
Hollande and France's prime minister endorsed the proposal and another amendment to write state of emergency powers — like raids — into the French Constitution.
