As the 2024 Summer Olympics approach in France, security concerns are running high (NBC News, El PaísASIS International, Olympics - Paris 2024 Schedule). The surfing competition will take place in Tahiti, which is in French Polynesia (Olympics - Surfing). For the purposes of this question, "terrorism" is as defined by EU law (European Council, see "EU definition of terrorism"). Fatalities must occur during the question's duration to count, and attribution or claims of responsibility are immaterial. "Continental France" includes the territory of the French Republic on the continent of Europe plus the island of Corsica. The hijacking or bombing of an aircraft will count if the aircraft last took flight from continental France/French Polynesia or fatalities occur within the territory or airspace of continental France/French Polynesia. An attack in the territorial waters of continental France/French Polynesia will count.
