French President Francois Hollande on Saturday blamed the Islamic State group for the attacks in Paris that left at least 128 dead, calling them an “act of war“.

The multiple attacks across the city late yesterday were “an act of war... committed by a terrorist army, the Islamic State, against France, against... what we are, a free country,” Hollande said.

He declared three days of national mourning following the deadly Paris attacks.

He called the three-day observance after what he called acts of “absolute barbarity” that killed at least 128 people and wounded more than 200 others, many of them seriously.
