ISIS Claim Responsibility For Paris Terror Attacks

At least 129 people have been killed and at least 352 injured, with 99 in critical condition, in the terror attacks in Paris yesterday.

The Islamic State (ISIS) have claimed responsibility for the six coordinated attacks on the French capital.

According to French President Francois Hollande, they took credit for the attacks in an online statement (translated from French).

"Eight brothers carrying explosive belts and guns targeted areas in the heart of the French capital that were specifically chosen in advance: the Stade de France during a match against Germany which that imbecile Francois Hollande was attending; the Bataclan where hundreds of idolaters were together in a party of perversity as well as other targets in the 10th, 11th and 18th arrondissement," the group said, according to Metro.

"France and those who follow its path must know that they remain the principal targets of the Islamic State."

The statement says that France is a key target after "having dared insult our Prophet, having bragged about fighting Islam in France and striking Muslims in the Caliphate with their planes which have not helped them in any way in the ill-smelling streets of Paris.

"This attack is just the start of a storm and a warning for those who wish to draw lessons."

"It is an act of war that was committed by a terrorist army, a jihadist army, Daesh, against France," Hollande said, using an Arabic acronym for the militants commonly referred to as ISIS.

"It is an act of war that was prepared, organized and planned from abroad, with complicity from the inside, which the investigation will help establish."

The bodies of eight attackers have been found after the tragedy, seven killed by suicide bombing.

CNN has reported that a Syrian passport was discovered next to the body of one of the attackers outside the Stade de France.

Hollande said: "France is strong and even if she is wounded she will always get up."

The massacre was the deadliest day in Paris since World War II.

Hollande has declared three days of national mourning.
