An Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks in an official statement, according to reports.

The string of coordinated attacks in and around Paris late Friday left at least 128 people dead, in the worst such violence in France’s history.

The assailants struck at least six different venues, ranging from the Stade de France football stadium to a pizzeria.

A full house of 1,500 people were packed into the popular venue in eastern Paris for a concert by the US band Eagles of Death Metal.

More details to follow.
