EU tightens border checks, gun control after Paris
By Alastair Macdonald and Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union will step up checks on its citizens traveling abroad, tighten gun control and collect more data on airline passengers, ministers agreed on Friday in response to the Paris attacks a week ago. Interior and justice ministers, who met in Brussels at the request of France following the Islamic State attacks that killed 130 people, also agreed to share more intelligence, especially on suspects like the Belgians and Frenchmen believed to have come back from Syria to strike at Parisians last Friday. "We need to act firmly, we need to act swiftly and with force," French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told a news conference as he hailed the level of support France had secured.
