Paris attacks: Hollande blames Islamic State for 'act of war'

The near-simultaneous attacks in Paris that killed at least 128 people were an "act of war" organised by the Islamic State (IS) militant group, French President Francois Hollande says.

He said the attacks, carried out by eight gunmen and suicide bombers, were "organised and planned from outside".

The targets included bars, restaurants, a concert and a high-profile football match. IS claimed the attacks.

Mr Hollande has declared three days of national mourning.

And to think this Government is cutting back on our military and defenses, we'll have nothing to fight back with.

David Cameron has warned "we must be prepared for a number of British casualties" after nearly 130 people died in the "brutal" attacks in Paris.

He said "however much we prepare, we in the UK face the same threat".
