PARIS — The head of France’s top luxury association on Friday called for government action after a spate of high-profile robberies that is denting the country’s image among tourists.
Elisabeth Ponsolle des Portes, president of Comité Colbert, said the French capital is rapidly gaining a reputation for “total insecurity” after a rash of incidents targeting mainly Asian tourists. She called on French Interior Minister Manuel Valls to take rapid action to restore public order.
