Euro 2016: Tournament to remain in France, say Uefa

 The Euro 2016 finals will remain in France, Uefa has reaffirmed.

The country's hosting of the event had come under scrutiny following Friday's attacks in Paris in which a total of 129 people were killed.

But in a statement on Monday, Uefa said they had been working with authorities for three years "to guarantee there is a safe and secure tournament".

The draw for the finals will go ahead as scheduled on 12 December at the Palais des Congres in Paris.

"We are confident that the necessary measures will be taken to ensure that is the case," added the statement.

The tournament will be played in France from 10 June to 10 July 2016.
