Paris terror attacks

On November 13, 2015, the worst attack on French soil since the second world war resulted in the deaths of at least 129 people in Paris. Islamic State jihadists said they were behind the gun and suicide attacks at a sold-out concert hall, restaurants and bars, and outside France's national stadium.
