The War: Islamic State Militants brought unprecedented violence to the streets of Paris – the city of love and lights. Islamic State Militants in a series of coordinated attacks killed at least 127 people and left over 200 injured, 100 of whom are reported to be grievously injured. Eight militants wearing vests and chanting anti-France and anti-Hollande slogans brought Paris to a standstill yesterday.

The Aftereffects: French President Francois Hollande formally declared a state of emergency in France after a cabinet meeting at the Elysee palace, the official residence of the French President.
Global Reaction: France has got an unparalleled support from the global community. US President Barack Obama condemned the attacks by Islamic State, saying it was “an attack on all of humanity”. New York lit the new World Trade Center in the red, white and blue of the French flag in solidarity with the panic and grief-stricken French. Taking a cue from it, Britain lit Wembley Stadium, Brazil lit Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and Canada lit the CN Tower in Toronto in red, white and blue. Twitter and Facebook remained abuzz with #SupportParis posts.
