AL KUWAIT, November 15. /TASS/. Supporters of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organisation planned terrorist attacks in several countries, including the US, France and Iran, Iraq’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari said on Sunday.
"Sources of Iraq’s reconnaissance service received information about terror attacks being prepared in several countries, including France, the US and Iran, and all of them have been notified," the minister said in a statement. "IS threatens all countries. The group has seized vast territories in Syria and Iraq, and we have warned it could spread its activities to other countries."
"The events in Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, and France confirm the Islamic State is a global threat," he said.
On Friday night, a series of terror attacks rocked Paris on Friday evening with shootings, bomb blasts and hostage taking. Hostages were taken at the Bataclan concert hall where 1,500 people gathered for a rock concert and almost simultaneously three suicide bombers blew themselves up next to the Stade de France stadium where a football match between French and German national teams was in the full swing. Besides, terrorists opened fire at people in popular nightlife spots - cafes, bars and restaurants crowded at that time. Latest reports said that the death toll reached 129; another 352 are injured.
President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency in the country and closed the state borders. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks.
