France is ending a nearly two-year state of emergency, but the controversy behind its counterterrorism measures isn't going away.
Under the new law, enforcement agencies get extended powers to search homes, shut down religious sites and conduct identity checks without a court order.

But critics argue the anti-terror law will allow discrimination against France's Muslim minority.
Macron says the new law will be evaluated within two years.
