French President Francois Hollande cancelled part of a European tour aimed at discussing the fall-out from Britain's vote to leave the EU, after the latest terror attack to strike the country, the presidency said Saturday.

Hollande will not be going to Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic on Wednesday. However, he will still go to Portugal and Ireland as planned on Tuesday and Thursday respectively for "working visits."

After Britain's shock vote last month, Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said they wanted to give "new impetus" to the bloc, particularly in the areas of "defence, growth, employment and competitiveness."
