French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner has instructed police to increase security around the offices and homes of all lawmakers who voted in favour of the free-trade agreement between the EU and Canada after they complained their premises had been attacked by farmers.

French lawmaker representing Emmanuel Macron’s party La République En Marche Claire O’Petit told RTL radio that she and other parliamentarians had received death threats because of their support for the EU-Canada free trade deal.
