Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 130 people.
And while all of France is honoring the victims of the attack, there was some unexpected news — France's yearlong state of emergency could be extended again.
"It is difficult at this stage to end the state of emergency, especially as we are about to begin a presidential election campaign in a few weeks when public meetings will be held. We need to protect our democracy," French Prime Minister Manuel Valls told the BBC.
