- French Interior Minister Bernard Cazaneuve said “war” had been declared on France, and that “Anybody who attacks the Republic, the Republic will fight back.”
- Twenty-three people are in custody and weapons and IT equipment have been seized, Cazaneuve said. A rocket launcher and bulletproof vest were among the items seized.
- Cazenueve has ordered 104 people to be put under house arrest since the Paris attacks.
- More than 150 police anti-terror raids conducted in cities across France.
- A fourth attacker has been identified from the Bataclan massacre as Samy Amimour, 28, the Paris prosecutors office announced.
- A worldwide manhunt is underway for Belgian-born French national Salah Abdeslam, who is suspected of being involved in the attacks. French police warned that he is “dangerous.”
