Abstract (Document Summary)

Premier Jacques Chirac on Sunday announced a series of tough measures designed to seal off France from terrorist infiltration shortly after a bomb killed one policeman and seriously injured two others in an attack on a busy Champs Elysees restaurant in Paris.

Chirac said that his government has also taken some secret anti-terrorist measures. Hinting that French secret agents would be involved, Chirac said, "I do not intend to reveal the details of what we intend to do."

Although two different organizations have taken responsibility for the Paris bombings, which began earlier this year, stopped for several months, and then resumed at the beginning of September, most analysts here believe they are the work of an organization reportedly headed by [Georges Ibrahim Abdallah].
