Authorities in Paris, with an eye to security following the November attacks by armed militants, are shortening a New Year video light show at the Arc de Triomphe at midnight on Thursday and cancelling a fireworks display to keep down crowds.

About 11,000 soldiers, police and emergency workers will be deployed — 2,000 more than last year — during subdued celebrations, the official city website said, while there would be restrictions on the sale of alcohol.

The French capital remains on high alert since the Nov. 13 shootings and suicide bombings by Islamic State militants that killed 130 people.
