Paris attacks: Suicide bomber identified
15 November 2015, Nirapad News: Authorities in France and Belgium took people into custody Saturday in the aftermath of the worst violence in France since World War II, a series of terror attacks that killed more than 120 people.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the horrific Paris attacks, for which France vowed revenge, reports CNN.
President Francois Hollande deemed the shootings and bombings “an act of war.” He said early Saturday, “We will lead the fight, and we will be ruthless.”
Belgian authorities made a number of arrests there in the first publicized apprehensions after Friday night’s bloodshed, a Belgian Justice Ministry spokeswoman said Saturday.
In Belgium, raids were conducted in the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Justice Ministry spokeswoman Sieghild Lacoere said. A car rented in Brussels was found near one of the sites of the Paris attacks, and “that’s what triggered the raids,” Lacoere said.
In all, the raids took place in three homes in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, a Western intelligence source told CNN.
