PARIS (Reuters) – Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has said 12,000 police will be deployed to enforce curfews in major cities across France from Saturday.

Police would not apply the “rule of six” on private gatherings, he added.

Macron on Wednesday ordered a curfew in Paris and eight other major cities to fight a second wave of coronavirus infections.
