France will impose border controls for one month to protect climate conference attendees from terrorists or public disorder-BBC

11/6/15, "UN climate conference: France to impose border controls," BBC

"France will impose border controls for one month from 30 November for the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said it was a precaution "because of the terrorist threat or risk of public disorder".

"It is by no means a suspension of Schengen," he stressed, referring to the EU free travel zone where passport checks are minimal or non-existent.

Schengen rules allow countries to restore border controls temporarily."
