Rome, April 21 - Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano reacted to French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen's request to shut France's borders after yesterday's terror attack in Paris by saying "history tells us that terrorists know no borders". He said "zero risk does not exist, shutting borders does not make us safer", stressing that "so far Italy has been a safe country thanks to the intelligence services, the police forces and the government's effective action". A French police officer was killed and two others injured in Thursday night's attack on the Champs Elysees.
