France to change constitution after terror attacks

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, France is to consider changing its constitution after terrorist attacks on the country.

On Wednesday, the Socialist government of President François Hollande proposed amending the constitution to allow authorities to strip some natural-born citizens of their nationality if they are convicted of terrorism.

Another amendment would shield state-of-emergency police powers, such as to conduct warrantless searches and order house arrests, from court challenges.
