Former French justice minister: Merkel 'error of judgement on migrants'

Former French justice minister Rachida Dati spoke to Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about the Paris attacks.

She said there needed to be controls on exterior borders of Europe: "If there is no security there can be no freedom."

She told BBC Newsnight she believed Germany's Chancellor "made an error of judgement" by letting many migrants into Europe.

It is believed one of the attack suspects entered mainland Europe after arriving by boat on the Greek island of Leros.
