Attacks on Paris an act of war

The near-simultaneous attacks in Paris that killed at least 128 people were an “act of war” organised by the Islamic State (IS) militant group, French President Francois Hollande says.
He said the attacks, carried out by eight gunmen and suicide bombers, were “organised and planned from outside”.
The targets included bars, restaurants, a concert and a high-profile football match. IS claimed the attacks.
Several arrests have been made in Belgium, the justice minister says.
