Hollande: ‘An Act of War’
French President Francois Hollande described the attacks as “an act of war” by the terrorist group. Speaking after an emergency security meeting, Hollande said Friday’s attacks were “committed by a terrorist army, the Islamic State group, a jihadist army, against France, against the values that we defend everywhere in the world, against what we are: A free country that means something to the whole planet.”
Hollande vowed to hit back against the militants. “France will be pitiless concerning the barbarity of Daesh,” the French president said.
