More deadly attacks in Europe are a certainty as the continent enters an era of "hyper-terrorism", France's prime minister has warned.
Manuel Valls told the Munich Security Conference the terrorist threat had increased because the ideology driving terrorists was "at the heart of our societies".
He said: "We have entered - we all feel it - a new era characterised by the lasting presence of 'hyper-terrorism'.
"We must be fully conscious of the threat, and react with a very great force and great lucidity. There will be attacks. Large-scale attacks. It's a certainty. This hyper-terrorism is here to stay.
"The force of the ideological fascination is formidable, and if we have changed era it is because this hyper-terrorism is in the heart of our societies."
Mr Valls was speaking at the three-day conference alongside Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who claimed Russia and the West have "slid back to a new Cold War" in recent years.
French Prime Minister is referring to more major terrorist attacks against Europe while he fails to mention hundreds of french citizens have been able to join terrorist groups like ISIS in the past few years.
