Premier and Minister for the Arts
The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk

The thoughts and prayers of all Queenslanders go out to those affected by the tragedy unfolding in Paris.

I would like to reassure Queenslanders that there is no known specific threat to Queensland at this time.

I have been advised that the terror alert level in Queensland – particularly for our police – remains at high- as it was previous to this harrowing news.

Detectives and intelligence officers are continuing to conduct threat assessments around the clock in conjunction with their interstate, federal and international counterparts.

Queenslanders concerned about loved ones in Paris should contact the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on 1300 555 135.
