4:25 p.m.
In light of the Paris attacks, a key figure in Poland’s Roman Catholic Church has expressed concern about security at next summer’s meeting of youth with Pope Francis in Poland.
The archbishop of Krakow, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, said Monday the church leaders are “worried because the events in Paris have shown that peace, security in Europe are threatened.”
More than 2 million young Catholics from around the world are expected to take part in World Youth Day with the pope in Krakow July 25-31.
Dziwisz said he hopes that Europe and the U.S. have “enough strength” to jointly ensure security to make “Europe and Poland feel safe, and to allow Youth Day” and the Euro 2016 soccer championship in France to be held in “safety and peace, which Europe deserves.”

French President Francois Hollande is addressing parliament about France’s response to the Paris attacks, in a rare speech to lawmakers gathered in the majestic congress room of the Palace of Versailles.
Hollande, in Monday’s speech, is especially expected to evoke France’s military operations in Syria and domestic security measures.
The last time a French president made a speech in front of both houses of Parliament in Versailles was in 2009, when Nicolas Sarkozy addressed the global financial crisis.
