In an effort to boost security, the French government is mobilizing as many as 10,000 troops.
The move — the largest deployment of troops in France's history — follows a terrorist attack at magazine Charlie Hebdo's Paris newsroom. In total, 17 people were killed in various attacks in that area.
France's president, Francois Hollande, ordered the troop deployment Monday, according to BBC Europe.
An anti-terrorism rally Sunday in France drew 3.7 million people. While no high-level officials from the U.S. attended, Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to visit the country later this week, according to CNN.
