More than 120 people were killed in an attack on Paris.

The French authority has declare national state of emergency.

Restaurants, Sport Stadium and a Concert hall were attacked by Gunmen and Bombers at locations across Paris.

According to a Reuters translation, the Islamic State group has released a undated video where a militant is heard saying France “will not live in peace as long as bombing continues”.
The video was released through Al-Hayat Media Centre, the group’s propaganda arm with a bearded fighter, speaking in Arabic, calling on French Muslims to carry out attacks in France if they are unable to travel to Syria themselves.
“As long as you keep bombing you will not live in peace. You will even fear traveling to the market,” he says.

French president Hollande in a statement after the emergency security meeting this morning, said he blamed the attack on Islamic State.
Hollande said 127 people were killed in the attacks, which he described as an “act of war”. 

“I pay homage to the country’s defenders who fought the terrorists yesterday,” he said. “Everyone has given their upmost and will be putting in their best efforts in the day to come.”
He called the attack “cowardly’ and said every measure would be taken to fight “the terrorist menace.”
“In this most serious and uncertain time, I call for unity and courage,” he said, adding that he would address the French parliament on Monday.
“Even if France is wounded, she will rise,” he said.
