French presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron has had a phone call with former U.S. President Barack Obama. He said he believed in an "independent France orientated towards peace". "The security forces are mobilized everywhere across France to ensure the security of French people and to ensure the presidential campaign goes smoothly", he said.
