The Israeli prime minister arrived in Paris this morning for a two-day diplomatic trip to France.

Benajmin Netanyahu will meet the French President Francois Hollande, Prime Minister Jean Marc Ayrault and Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.

According to media reports, the meeting with Mr Hollande will focus on Iran’s nuclear programme, since the French leader supports imposing additional sanctions on Iran.

Mr Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, will also attend a memorial service in Toulouse, to commemorate the four Jewish victims of an antisemitic terrorist attack in March.

Family and friends of the victims will also attend the service at the Ohr Torah School where the attack took place.
