Paris: Eight terrorists were killed, including seven who blew themselves up during Friday’s attacks in Paris that left at least 160 people, a source told news agency AFP.
Head of Paris police said Saturday that while all of the attackers are believed to have died, authorities are searching for possible accomplices.
Four men who attacked a concert hall in Paris on Friday killing around 100 people were themselves killed when police stormed the building, including three who activated explosives belts, several sources told news agency AFP.
“Three of them blew themselves up and a fourth, who was also wearing a belt, was hit by police fire and blew up as he fell,” one source told AFP.
One of the assailants mentioned France’s intervention in Syria’s war to justify the attacks, said a witness who was at a concert venue.
“I clearly heard them say ‘It’s the fault of (French President Francois) Hollande, it’s the fault of your president, he should not have intervened in Syria’. They also spoke about Iraq,” said Pierre Janaszak, a radio presenter.
