CANBERRA Joe Corona USA Jersey , May 24 (Xinhua) -- American online retail giant Amazon is a step closer to making its long-awaited Australian debut, after Australia Post revealed it was in "advanced talks" to secure the lucrative contract to deliver goods to millions of Australian consumers.

Earlier this month, Amazon confirmed to the Australia market that it was actively pursuing land on which to house its goods storage and distribution center. But on Wednesday, Australia's government-owned postal service confirmed it was in advanced talks with the retail chain about securing a deal by July.

Australia Post chief operating officer Bob Black told News Corp that his company, and its express delivery subsidiary StarTrack Jesse Gonzalez USA Jersey , has an 82 percent share of the local goods delivery market, and said Amazon was close to signing a deal which would open the door to a revolution in online shopping for Australian consumers.

"We are talking to them now; we will continue to talk to them," Black said.

"When there is a memorandum of understanding between both of us, we will obviously publicize that. But we hope to have something agreed in the next two months. Amazon is a significant -inbound international customer for us already."

In the United States, Amazon currently uses postal companies UPS and Fedex Gyasi Zardes USA Jersey , but it is reportedly pursuing the option to set up its own delivery service, something which could save the company more than a billion U.S. dollars per year.

Black said he expects a similar development in the Australian market, but admitted it was likely well down the track, opening the door for Australia Post and StarTrack to carry the load for a significant amount of time.

"At some point (Amazon) will set up their own distribution network here," Black said.

"But we think they will have grown the market here by then. We want to be able to provide a high level of service at good value for money and give them some great distribution value-add for them to rely on."

It's expected that Amazon could secure a share of up to 4 billion AU dollars (2.99 billion U.S. dollars) in the Australian market once it arrives.

Paris - France announced an unprecedented deployment of thousands of troops and police to bolster security at "sensitive" sites including Jewish schools Monday, a day after marches gathering nearly four million people countrywide.

"We have decided ... to mobilise 10,000 men to protect sensitive sites in the whole country from tomorrow (Tuesday) evening," Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said after an emergency security meeting.

"This is the first time that our troops have been mobilised to such an extent on our own soil," he added.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls said one of the Islamists responsible for last week's attacks that rocked France -- Amedy Coulibaly who gunned down a policewoman and four Jewish shoppers at a kosher supermarket -- likely received help from others.

"We think there are in fact probably accomplices Eric Lichaj USA Jersey ," Valls told French radio. "The hunt will go on."

A hostage from the Jewish supermarket described the harrowing events to Europe 1 radio on Monday.

"When I arrived in the entrance of the store ... I saw a body, seated on the floor with its head leaning. I felt like I was in a bad movie," the woman said.

The alert level in shell-shocked France remained at its highest possible as the interior minister announced the deployment of nearly 5,000 police to guard Jewish schools and places of worship.

Bernard Cazeneuve said he was putting in place a "powerful and durable" system of protection for France's Jewish community, the largest in Europe.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the scene of the hostage drama at the kosher supermarket in eastern Paris on Friday.

To cries of "Bibi Dax McCarty USA Jersey , Bibi" -- his nickname -- and under extensive security protection, Netanyahu paid tribute to the four Jewish men who died at the store.

They will be buried in Israel on Tuesday.

Netanyahu, who joined Hollande at the main synagogue in Paris after Sunday's march, had praised the "very firm position" taken by French leaders against what he called "the new anti-Semitism and terrorism" reigning in France.

Muslims are also coming under attack, with community leaders reporting more than 50 incidents recorded since the assault on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine David Bingham USA Jersey , including apparent arson at a mosque in Poitiers on Sunday.

That came after more than 1.5 million people marched through Paris in solidarity and sorrow in the biggest rally in modern French history.

In an extraordinary show of unity, dozens of world leaders, including from Israel and the Palestinian Authority, linked arms at the front of the march led by victims' families.

During an emotional and colourful rally, the crowd brandished b.
