Paris attacks: what we know so far

Police patrol at the Eiffel Tower in Paris on November 14, 2015 following a series of coordinated attacks in and around the city on November 13French police have identified the first attacker out of the three teams of gunmen who carried out the worst post-war attacks in Paris, which killed 129 people and wounded hundreds more. The Islamic State group has claimed the carnage carried out at some of the French capital’s most popular nightspots, including a sold-out concert hall, restaurants and bars and outside France’s national stadium. The seven attackers — six blew themselves up and one was shot by police — are the first to ever carry out suicide bombings on French soil and, unlike those who killed 17 in Paris in January, were unknown to security services.
