French Government publishes guide on surviving terror attacks

Paris: Three weeks after the Paris terror attacks which left 130 victims dead, the French government on Friday issued a guide showing citizens how to survive an attack and to learn how to live with the risk of terrorism.

Flee, hide and raise the alarm are among the government's basic advice "to better prepare and protect citizens against the terrorist threat", Xinhua reported.

The guide recommended people flee the scene of danger and help others to escape and seek a safe place. It instructs to hide behind a wall or push a sofa behind a door of a hideout room.

People in hiding should turn off the lights and cut off phone ringers to avoid attract attackers' attention, it added.

It also recommended calling the emergency services.

The guide will appear on posters in public places such as supermarkets, city halls, stadiums and museums.
