57 people fired from French airports: French official

Authorities will inspect personal in workplaces that require extra security

A total of 57 people were dismissed or fired from airports in France since the attack on Charlie Hebdo in January, a French official said.

“Since the beginning of the year, there were 57 people who lost their authorisation because of radicalisation. There have been five more since the last attacks on 13 November,” an official at Charles de Gaulle airport Philippe Riffaut said in a press conference.

Riffault warned that more suspensions will take place after the authorities inspect personnel in workplaces that require extra security.

There are 86,000 work permits in the security area that will be reviewed, starting with 5,000 airport security personnel.

French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency after the Paris attacks that left 130 people dead. Since then, airport authorities conducted inspections on more than 4,000 personal lockers.
