Civil war is brewing in France.
That’s the warning from a number of French soldiers to President Emmanuel Macron.
They accuse the president of granting what they called concessions to Islamism.
The open letter was posted on a far-right website Valeurs Actuelles.
And echoed a similar text published last month by a group of retired generals.
Both letters were condemned by the French government.
But welcomed by far-right leader Marine Le Pen who is seen as Macron’s main rival in next year’s presidential election.
But is this a political manoeuvre?
Or does it reflect a real malaise of French society?
