Police continue hunt for accomplices who aided three gunmen

France on Monday ordered 10,000 troops into the streets to protect sensitive sites amid the hunt for accomplices to attacks that left 17 people and the three gunmen dead.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the search is urgent because "the threat is still present". The attacks began on Wednesday with a massacre at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and ended when the three attackers were killed on Friday in nearly simultaneous raids by security forces.
